Elizabeth I: Virgin on the Ridiculous

  • Show Information

1558. England. A country divided by religion and politics, teetering on the brink of civil war. The hopes of the nation lie with one woman.

2022. 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 West Country actors.

Yes, that’s right. After touring their sold-out-from-Penzance-to-Pitlochry, Off-West-End-Award-nominated The Six Wives of Henry VIII, the second of Living Spit’s (un)Holy Trinity of hilarious heritage historiographies is go as Howard and Stu attempt to tell the story of the greatest monarch that ever lived – Elizabeth: The Virgin Queen.

With more live original music, silly songs, smutty shenanigans, perfunctory props, and hysterically historical horseplay, this promises to be (another) poorly researched lesson in Tudor history that you’ll never forget.


We can’t wait to welcome you to the theatre and we’re taking active steps to ensure that everyone can feel safe, relaxed and enjoy the show. Read our latest Covid measures here.
