Description By Paul Foster.
"Using the device of a scrubby troupe of players touring and performing their version of the life of Elizabeth, Foster presents an inspired play-within-a-play experience which hits the high spots of Elizabeth's rein, while creating a feeling for what it was like for both royalty and ruffians in Elizabeth's turbulent times". "An outrageous and hilarious free-wheeling knock-about".
