With incomparable talents Lia Williams and Juliet Stevenson, we had high hopes for performance in this piece.
Teamed with a creative team including Robert Icke at the helm, well, this was set to be one of the theatrical highlights of the year!
The choice of who plays the Virgin Queen and who played the Queen of Scots was decided each night on the toss of a coin.
Who did we get playing who and what did we think of the piece? Watch the vid to find out.
