"On one level, this play works as a depiction of historical fact, but Brabon’s intuitive writing and direction has delved much deeper to pose questions about Mary’s character, feelings and motivations. The historical aspects of the play are not depicted in a straightforward linear manner. Instead,  Brabon uses various theatrical devices, the most effective being using younger versions of Mary (an impressive Emma Smith) in scenes that give us an understanding of situation, particularly her relationship with her capricious father, Henry VIII (played with commanding strength by Brendan O’Connor). "

Two Sisters.  One Crown.  One Hell of a Family.

Meet Elizabeth - the future Queen Elizabeth the First. 
She doesn't want you to see this play.  She would prefer no-one heard this story.  
Because it's not about her.  It's about her sister, Mary.


This is the seldom told tale of the life of Mary Tudor, the first ever Queen of England and the first born child
of the infamous King Henry the Eighth. We all know the story of his six wives and we've all heard the story of Elizabeth's Golden Era - but Mary's story lies amongst the ruins of history, forgotten. 

Just the way Elizabeth likes it. 

Guest starring Rachel Nutchey as the young Elizabeth with Terri Brabon in the title role,

BLOODY MARY promises to be a showdown of biblical proportions.
