Mary I (r.1553 – 1558)

Mary managed to live longer than Edward before her, but didn’t do much better in the whole reigning thing. There isn’t a vast amount of material to play with here, and there’s probably much from the previous lists that are applicable here. We’ll add detail as we go along. Feel free to send angry emails.

Gammer Gurtons Needle by Mr S – Voted for production by our patrons. Though printed in 1575, this is the earliest point that this play might have come about. A reference to a play called Diccon the Bedlem in 1562/3 could be about the same work. Full cast audio adaptation and !SPOILERS! episodes are in the works and coming soon.

Respublica – voted for production by our patrons. Full Cast Audio Adaptation and !Spoilers! episodes are in the works for 2019/20. The Harry Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin, have released the full manuscript for the play digitally, and you can view it online here –https://hrc.contentdm.oclc.org/digital/collection/p15878coll7/id/6462/rec/1
