T R A G I C Q U E E N S

Premiered at Mainline Theatre August 2017
Remounted at Centaur Theatre’s Wildside Festival January 2018


 Part frenetic, part melancholic, follow the capricious and passionate power games of three time-travellers stuck in a perpetual state of girlhood. Alienating and deeply intimate, Tragic Queens is a relentless maelstrom of eras, emotions and mirrors.
