The Nine-Day Queen by Jen Tucker

14 - 19 May 2024, 7.30 pm

The Nine-Day Queen follows 15-year-old Lena and Rita. When an attack puts Lena in a coma, Rita sits by her side for nine days. Wracked by survivor’s guilt and overcome by rage and grief, she hallucinates the ghost of Lady Jane Grey. For nine days, Rita and Jane teach each other to be brave in a world where women’s bravery can feel futile. An intergenerational exploration of female plight through the ages, The Nine-Day Queen interrogates female resistance and celebrates the power of sisterhood in the face of adversity.
