The Virgin Trial

by Kate Hennig 

“Once a woman’s sexual exploits are exposed…there’s simply no taking that picture out of your head. Let alone out of the public consciousness.”  

Can a little girl really be an agent of chaos? As Bess arrives at the Tower of London to be questioned regarding the attempted murder of her brother, King Edward VI, she has no idea that she is about to stand trial.

Kate Hennig’s modern dramatization examines Queen Elizabeth I’s relationship to Thomas Seymour and exists in a world divided by time: torn between the heart of a scandal and the innocence of childhood. In a world of power, royalty, scandal and tabloids, Bess strives to restore – or reinvent – her reputation as the Virgin Queen.

Directed by Meghan de Chastelain (MFA CCT Directing student)

Trigger warnings:  Sexual assault, abortion, torture and violence, references to addiction and alcohol.
