'Political [and religious] extremism involves two prime ingredients: an excessively simple diagnosis of the world's ills, and a conviction that there are identifiable villains' John W Gardner. Rape, burnings, beheadings and religious persecution run rife as England's first Queen Regnant, newly reunited with a politicised Pope, tries to untangle service to God from service to the self. Written and directed by award-winning playwright Bernie C Byrnes. Speeches made by the current conservative government are woven through a text that explores damnation and salvation through the eyes of Mary Tudor.
