Description: Winnipeg, MB, Blizzard. 2000, First Edition. (ISBN: 0921368984) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 79 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). "In this daring and original play, Timothy Findley brings together none other than William Shakespeare and the formidable Virgin Queen, Elizabeth I. What makes a man a man and a woman a woman? Late at night on the eve of her former lover's execution, this is the very question Queen Elizabeth wrestles with as she descends to the stable lodgings of Shakespeare's players. Her unexpected arrival disturbs the playwright and his actors and provokes the rapier-sharp, haughty indifference of Ned, Shakespeare's genius performer of women's roles - himself now aged, ill and facing his mortality. In their vitriolic confrontation, the actor, the playwright, and the queen come to startling revelations about sex, identity, humanity, and love." Dust jacket has very minor edge wrinkling. Fine/Near Fine.
