Sex as power in the reign of Elizabeth I.

Elizabeth was a political mastermind and monarchic force who reigned supreme for 45 years, and yet she still felt that her power ultimately resided in her beauty.

Ella Hickson’s new play Swive [Elizabeth] interrogates the power of aesthetics in gaining and maintaining control in a patriarchy. It is premiered at Shakespeare’s Globe, London, in December 2019.
