Evolution Theatre to Present ELIZABETH REX Area Premiere, 6/4-14

Evolution Theatre Company presents ELIZABETH REX by Timothy Findley in its area premiere. There will be one preview on Wednesday, June 4 at 8 PM. Performances run Thursday through Saturday, June 5 - 7 and Thursday through Saturday, June 12 - 14 at 8 PM, and Sunday, June 8 at 2 PM.

The late Canadian Playwright Timothy Findley's sprawling period drama Elizabeth Rex, tells the fictional story of when Queen Elizabeth I turns to the theatre for distraction in the hours before a man she loves is executed for treason by her order. The play's complicated duel between Queen Elizabeth and dying, upstart Shakespearean actor Ned Lowenscroft, launches the play into the stratosphere. Elizabeth Rex, deals with issues surrounding gender, identity and power.

Directed by Brent Alan Burington, the show features David Vargo as William Shakespeare, Mark Phillips Schwamberger as Ned Lowenscroft and Peggy Reasoner as Queen Elizabeth I. With Brent Ries as Jonathan "Jack" Edmund, Eve Nordyke as Kate "Tardy" Tardwell, Madison Garvin Lee as Henry "Harry" Pearle, Michael Antico as Percy Gower & Lord Robert Cecil, Amie Lea Heller as Lady Mary Stanley, Leslie Robinson as Anne, Countess of Henslowe and Judy Manley as the Bear.
