BLOODY MARY (article first published : 2002-06-10)

Bloody Mary is the new musical revue that takes a light look at the Dark Ages. Queen Bloody Mary herself hosts this comic romp through the history of England’s original dysfunctional Royal Family and she depicts all the traditional Tudor family values such as murder, adultery and intrigue.

With diabolical new versions of familiar songs, and an eye for royal scandal, Bloody Mary leaves no axe un-ground in its search for the real story behind the Terrible Tudors, no fact undistorted in its portrayal of the bad old days when Queens ruled and men were scared.

Carol Trench plays Bloody Mary – singer, sovereign, and royal pain; Evan Roberts plays Henry VIII on the one hand and piano with the other. Peter Court directs. Bloody Mary runs at The Royal Backstage from May 29 to June 29. Tickets include a three-course dinner menu specially designed around the show’s theme. To book contact 031 333-6113.
