TWO QUEENS CHAT LIP-STICK AND POLITICS IN MAGIC CULTURE COLLISION
‘NZINGABETH! Or When Ana Met Virginia’ is a provocative, thoughtful new play from Taunton-based arts and education initiatives Storytree and The Bluebirds, and Exeter-based Four of Swords. It portrays a fictitious, musical meeting between Elizabeth I of England and the proud African Queen Ana Nzinga. It poses crucial questions on race, gender and politics, but is also designed as a treat for the senses; expect wig-swapping, sumptuous costumes, laughter and great music.
