Event description

Description


Brandy

by MATTHEW DAVIES

One ‘Favourite’s’ descent is another ‘Favourite’s’ ascent.

It is the 18th century: Queen Anne lays old and sick in bed, she is drinking copious amounts of brandy as she fortifies herself in preparation for the meeting between herself and her childhood friend, confidante and adversary – Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough. ‘Brandy’ explores the characters of two powerful women, the interpersonal politics waged in the monarch’s bedchamber, private backstairs and the corridors of court and the effect their friendship had on a nation.

Brandy was first performed at South London Theatre as part of their new writing programmed in 2010.

Creative Curve Theatre Company was set up in 2014. The first production was Brandy at St John’s, Waterloo. In 2018 Creative Curve Theatre Company developed and performed The Blitz Herstory as part of the Waterloo heritage weekend. The ethos of the company is the retelling of history from the women’s perspective.
