About Our Play:

Maribeth Porter—head chambermaid to Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots rules over Fotheringay Castle with an iron broom and dustpan. But when she’s given the untenable task of preparing the castle for an historic meeting between the two queens with nothing but an audience of untrained recruits, royal chaos ensues. Tempers flare, insults are exchanged and what should have been a reconciliation turns into a life or death struggle for the throne.

Monarch is a one woman show that explores queenly pride, rivalry, and servitude. Through audience interaction, Monarch questions our participation in hierarchies of power. When ambitions clash, who gets caught in the middle? And most importantly, who’s left to clean up the mess?

Floors will be scrubbed. Linens will be laundered. Heads will roll.

About Our Company:

Our motley crew consists of Christine Doidge, Amanda Holston, and James Miller, all Philadelphia-based theatre artists who are making work that melds entertainment with deep and universal human experience. We believe that people connect more fully with pieces that are fun, engaging, and entertaining, and that they more acutely feel the underbelly of human truth and experience when it’s couched in fun spectacle. Playing earnestly, with a healthy dose of irreverence, peppered with audience interaction, we aim to create pieces of theatre that are visceral, heightened, and just down right fun.
