The Queen's Speech

Saturday, March 14, 2015 7:30 PM

DESCRIPTION
The Queen's Speech is English professor Terry Boyle's contemporary re-telling of the Cain and Abel story, inspired by the form and content of the great Mystery Plays that developed in medieval Europe.  
In this modern interpretation of the original tale, Cain is still the marked man, marginalized by those from whom he seeks approval. Boyle adds psychological and comic force to the standard telling by representing the wandering Cain in the attire of a drag queen. Cain's monologue, interspersed by voices (ghosts of the past and present) continue to haunt a mind that is unraveling before our eyes, representing those who struggle with self-acceptance.
