Gillian English She Wolf

IN PERSON

Gillian English She Wolf

Queen Margaret was the original Cersei Lannister. She was a woman so cruel and cold, she would scare Lady Macbeth. Only, that's not true. Turns out the way we view women in positions of power hasn't changed much in the last 500 years. If all history remembers of you are the lies, does the truth even matter? Yes, this is a comedy.

Margaret was a French Princess and an English Queen. Demonised in her time and mythologised through history, she has become more legend than lady. But who was Queen Margaret? Where was the divide between personal and political? She Wolf is a comedic exploration of the infamous queen as presented by Shakespeare in four monologues that laid the foundation for a mythical monster.
