Elizabeth I was one of the most luminous, fascinating, and formidable women in history. Experience her as she has never been seen before in Elizabeth: Heart of a King, a new play by Lorella Loftus. This VORTEX workshop production explores the formative times in her life as a young woman and the main events of her life as a queen and as an icon. A woman of contradictions, Elizabeth was brave and vulnerable, intelligent and ambivalent, flirtatious and icy, and fundamentally, very human. Three different women play Elizabeth at different stages of her life-- a lone woman struggling to retain her political and personal power in a male-dominated world. Henry VIII, Thomas Seymour, Robert Dudley, and William Cecil are just some of the men who had a major influence on her life who appear in the play.
Elizabeth: Heart of a King features Angela Loftus, Lorella Loftus, and Rae Petersen as the three Elizabeths with Richard Dodwell as Cecil, Derek Jones as Leicester, Ben Weaver as Thomas Seymour, and Sebastian Garcia as Essex. Also featuring Peggy Schott, Tiffany Slay, Mindy Rast-Keenan, Lance Barnett and Ken Ramsey.
Directed by Lorella Loftus. Lighting Design by Patrick Anthony. Sound Design by David DeMaris.
