Two Bloody Queens
A noble, but shambolic attempt
This article is from 2010.
It takes a brave man to sum up the lives of two dead monarchs – especially in drag, in a noisy pub basement, in an hour. Robert Inston’s portrayal of Elizabeth Tudor and Mary Queen of Scots is a noble, but shambolic attempt to show the real women behind their ‘diva’ reputations. An over-ambitious history lesson; sadly Regina fails to engage with her commoners.
