Raleigh introduces Elizabeth, the wittiest, wisest and most unforgiving of all English Queens. Walter ís in love with Elizabeth, the spiritual embodiment of England. But will he end up in her bed, or will he lose his head? Potatoes, tobacco, Elizabethan dance, cross-dressing, xenophobia and laughs galore from the team behind Johnson And Boswell: Late But Live, which played to critical acclaim at the Traverse Theatre during the 2007 Edinburgh festival.
Stewart Lee was voted the 41st best stand-up ever in a recent Channel 4 poll. He co-wrote and directed the Olivier award winner Jerry Springer The Opera. As well as various TV and radio credits both with comedy partner Richard Herring and in his own right, Lee regularly works in the theatre, including with Johnny Vegas on the play Interiors for Manchester International Festival.
