Three Queens
by Rosamund Gravelle

23 April - 11 May 2024, 7:30pm

A forgotten moment of English history comes to life at Barons Court Theatre this spring with the debut play from Rosamund Gravelle.

February, 1554. 

Queen Mary wears the crown of a nation divided by religion. Before the dawn breaks, confessions will be made, prayers will be sent, and more than one life will hang in the balance.


Queen Mary is determined to save the soul of England. Future Queen Elizabeth is desperate to avoid her mother’s fate, and teenage Queen Jane Grey’s rebellion seeks to unravel everything.


Told in real time over one sleepless night, the play follows three women maneuvering for power, each carving out their place in history. 

Directed by Sharon Willems

Music by Dimitri Kennaway

Lighting Design by Leo Bacica

Produced by Kibo Productions & Rosamund Gravelle

Three Queens runs for 65 minutes without an interval.
