A Staged Reading of a New Play^

Before she was the Virgin Queen, Elizabeth was a little girl whose mother caught the wrong end of a guillotine. Then she met Katherine Parr, mighty Henry's sixth wife, and their mysterious relationship would forge Elizabeth's character forever. But how? How did Katherine and Elizabeth fall from joyous conspirators to bitter rivals? How did her relationship with one woman forgotten by history transform this lonely little girl in to a leader full of steel?
