The Virgin Queen Entertains Her Fool

By Michael Hollinger

Directed by Aaron Posner

World Premiere

A revered Queen on her way to quitting this mortal coil ponders who will follow in her footsteps in this world premiere production. Adahlia – a dying queen who has been tasked with spending the whole of her reign unmarried – must choose her successor. But she’d much rather spend her final days being entertained by Ermo, her very funny fool. As those closest to her become more insistent that she makes her choice, long hidden truths begin to emerge from the shadows in this witty, absurdist tragicomedy. Contains adult themes.

Featuring Tracy Michelle Arnold and Jim DeVita.
