Did Elizabeth 1 and Mary Queen of Scots ever meet? Let’s say they did and had a cup of tea! Throw in Elizabeth’s controlling advisor, Walsingham, the vague Sir Francis Drake and the ridiculous Erik the Viking and you have a comedy that would make King Henry VIII turn in his grave…
Queen Elizabeth 1:
Thin, ditzy, anxious, wants to be ordinary. Speaks very well. 30 to 40 years.
Pushy, harsh, pompous, effeminate, has his own agenda. 30 to 50 years.
Sir Francis Drake:
Scatterbrained and loyal. 30 to 50 years.
Mature and clever, somewhat street wise. Cockney and Scottish accents required. 30 to 40 years.
Prince Erik of Sweden:
Comical Nordic accent, a little daft, self-important, over-the-top. 30 to 60 years.
Please note ages are stage ages.
