In the small hours of the night before Ash Wednesday, 1601, William Shakespeare and the Lord Chamberlain's Men receive an unexpected visitor to their humble lodgings. Unable to rest, the Queen herself has come to keep vigil on the eve of the execution of her former lover, the Earl of Essex. Her arrival provokes the rapier-sharp wit and keen insight of Ned Lowenscroft, the company's brilliant performer of women's roles, and sparks the imagination of the Bard. In the course of the long night and their often turbulent exchanges, the actor, the queen, and the playwright must confront the roles they have played and the lives they have lived, wresting with questions of identity, sexuality, and love, all the while asking: what makes a man a man, and a woman a woman?

Set in a timeless past with deep resonances for modern audiences, Elizabeth Rex is an imaginative 'tour de force'.
