The Gate Theatre has announced its next production, Dear Elizabeth, a two-hander by award-winning US playwright Sarah Ruhl, directed by Ellen McDougall. The piece, running at the venue from 17 January to 9 February 2019 (press nights are 22 and 23 January 2019), will be performed by a series of guest actors including Travis Alabanza, Jade Anouka, Tim Crouch, Tamsin Greig and Alex Jennings.
What you do get from the trilogy day though is a huge sense of occasion, and the undeniable truth of the significance of what has been achieved here. Unabashedly all-female productions of Shakespeare, shaking up a (male dominated) establishment that still can’t quite let these things happen without a range of think-pieces.
