Kate Glover's Queen Anne plays Barons Court Theatre
Historia Theatre Company presents Queen Anne, a new play by Kate Glover, at the Barons Court Theatre, in Barons Court, west London, from 08 Jul to 03 Aug 2014.
Synopsis: 'When Queen Anne, shy, gout-ridden and overweight, ascends the throne in 1702, the Jacobites, proto-terrorists, will stop at nothing to kill her and put her half brother the Roman Catholic James Stuart on the throne. James just happens to be supported by the hugely powerful Louis XIV of France. Court favourites vie for influence with the Queen. Coalition politics spark off intense rivalries between Whig and Tory politicians. With her husband and children all dead, how will the Queen cope?'
Queen Anne is directed by Kenneth Michaels, and to commemorate the tercentenary of the death of Queen Anne on Fri 01 Aug 2014, there will be a post-show Q&A session with the cast.
