It's 1135 and King Henry I lies dying, his only legitimate heir is his daughter, Matilda. So why have we never heard of her?
A woman who should have been as famous and powerful as Elizabeth Tudor.
A woman who should have been the first in a long line of female 'Kings'.
A woman 'marginal in her own story', finally put centre stage.
Emma Latham (Director: The Lab - Theatre Royal Plymouth, Vaults, Theatre503, Narwhal Ensemble, RADA studios) and Amanda Lane (Writer: Top Trumps atTheatre503, Nick Darke Award finalist, New Writing South 10) have come together to create a new piece of work, ambitious and in scale and groundbreaking in style. They invite you to come explore Matilda's story, how she very nearly came to rule as 'Lady of the English' and the bloody turmoil that followed her usurpation.
This is a work in progress performance with limited tickets.
