Bess The Commoner Queen featuring Michelle Todd
Sunday 28 April 2019
A story of survival and astonishing business success in the brutal world of Elizabethan politics, as witnessed first-hand by Bess of Hardwick. Born a farmer's daughter, Bess rose to become the richest woman in Elizabethan England, creating the Cavendish dynasty, building Chatsworth House and Hardwick Hall and becoming a “maker of queens”. An ambitious show presented as a seamless mix of powerful live performance and luscious film, shot on location at Hardwick Hall.
