A Compagnia de' Colombari Production
texts&beheadings/ElizabethR by Karin Coonrod
New England Premiere

From the visionary director Karin Coonrod, four actresses from the theater collective Compagnia de' Colombari offer a fractured portrait of "The Virgin Queen" Elizabeth I of England in a breathless game of hide-and-seek with history, mystery, and the theater form inspired by James Joyce and Gertrude Stein.

The performance will be followed by a discussion with the artists moderated by Wesleyan Professor of Theater Ronald Jenkins
