NZINGABETH! (or When Ana Met Virginia) is a new show devised by the unholy tripartite alliance of: Sasha Herriman from The Bluebirds, Gloria Lawrence from Storytree, and Philip Kingslan John from Four of Swords.
Together they have created a musical show which crucially challenges perceptions of nationality, race and gender. The play portrays a fictitious meeting between the English Queen Elizabeth I and the African Queen Ana Nzinga of Ndongo, who bond over a discussion of politics, femininity, race, culture, make-up, men and song. Their dialogue is accompanied by a carefully crafted fusion of African and Tudor instrumentation.
Please note: Saturday Matinee performance includes a 60 minute music workshop (children must be accompanied by an adult)
