Monarch

See Event Description
Christine Doidge, Amanda Holston, James Miller Monarch is a show in which one peasant and an audience of newly hired servants play out the deadly struggle between Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots in a piece that explores power, rivalry, and an audience’s inability to properly wash a petticoat. Floors will be scrubbed. Linens will be laundered. Heads will roll. Our motley crew consists of Christine Doidge, Amanda Holston, and James Miller, all Philadelphia based theatre artists who make 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 spectacle. We aim to create pieces of theatre that are visceral, heightened, and just down right fun. This is an independently produced Fringe Festival show.
