Living Spit are back with Elizabeth I - Virgin on the Ridiculous
LIVING Spit (The 6 Wives of Henry VIII) return with
another hilarious romp through history on Friday, 6 March 2015, with:- '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 1 Woman.
2013. 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 Bristolian actors.
But Howard Coggins and Stuart Mcloughlin can no longer rely on apparent physical resemblances to Tudor monarchs. They've done The 6 Wives of Henry VIII, and the truth is neither of them look like anyone else.
But they won't be deterred. They're just going to have to dig a little deeper. Act a little better. Live a little dangerous-er, as they attempt to tell the story of the greatest Monarch that ever lived - 'Elizabeth - The Virgin Queen'.
But will these 2 theatrical fools be up to the challenge?
With more live original music, silly songs, stupid shenanigans, perfunctory props, and hysterically historical horseplay, this promises to be (another) poorly researched lesson in Tudor history that you'll never forget.
'Elizabeth I - Virgin on the Ridiculous' at The Atkinson starts at 7.30pm on Friday, 6 March 2015.
