Mary's Hand will be performed at Lancaster Priory.

It’s a little-known fact that Queen Mary loved games of chance, such as dice and cards.

In Mary’s Hand, the Queen shares a game of cards with the audience who get to choose the next card to be turned.

Their choices prompt Mary’s reflection upon the influences and events in her life: her father Henry VIII, her mother Katherine of Aragon, her Catholic faith, her half-sister Elizabeth I, and her desperate desire for a child.

Words and direction are by Di Sherlock and music by Martin Bussey.

Mary’s Hand will be performed at Lancaster Priory on February 23, 2019, at 7.30pm.
