Cast for Marie Regina: The Life of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots at Abbey Theater of Dublin
Nikki Davis is an actor, writer, and historian who has performed in Columbus, OH for the past four years in such plays as Two Gentlemen of Verona (Silvia), The Lieutenant of Inishmore (Mairead), and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Bottom). She will be attending NYU Tisch School of the Arts in the fall pursuing a MA in Performance Studies where she plans to focus her combined passions on evolving what she calls, “historical female solo performance theory.” She would like to thank Joe Bishara for encouraging her to remount her undergraduate honors thesis performance of Marie Regina: The Life of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots. History is a roadmap for our present and future, and yet it is so woefully forgotten or manipulated. Nikki hopes to make theatre that gives a voice to silenced women of the past in order to embolden women today to speak up and let their stories be heard.
