Update 03/06/20 – We are delighted to announce that we have new dates for Living Spit’s Elizabeth I performance that was due to take place in July 2020. The new dates are Tuesday 18th to Thursday 20th May 2021. All tickets already purchased are valid for the same seats, same performance and the new date. All tickets are now back on sale.
We thank you for your understanding and patience at this time.
If you have also booked tickets for Living Spit’s Frankenstein at the theatre in September 2020, we are still hoping that this will go ahead at this time, but will keep reviewing the situation. Thank you for your understanding and support at this time.
Living Spit is back at the Blakehay Theatre and they bring us the amazing Elizabeth I Virgin on the Ridiculous.
1558. England. A country divided by religion and politics, teetering on the brink of civil war. The hopes of the nation lie with one woman.
2020. England. A country divided by those who enjoy plays featuring men in dresses and those who don’t. The hopes of the nation lie with two West-Country actors.
Yes, that’s right. By popular demand (and the fact that they can’t be bothered to write a new show) Elizabeth’s back! The third of Living Spit’s (un)Holy Trinity of hilarious heritage historiographies is go as Howard and Stu attempt to tell the story of the greatest monarch that ever lived – Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen.
With more live original music, silly songs, smutty shenanigans, perfunctory props, and hysterically historical horseplay, this promises to be (another) poorly researched lesson in Tudor history that you’ll never forget.
“A case study of sinewy simplicity and honed comedy craftsmanship.”
After their sell out shows of ‘Odyssey’ and ‘Swan Lake’ at the Blakehay Theatre, this is not a show to be missed, so make sure you book your tickets early!
Age Recommendation; 14+ (Bad Language and sexually explicit references)
