Helen will take on the role of Queen Elizabeth I, whilst a cast of ‘Queen’s Players’ will be introduced by a character called ‘The Herald’ played by Omid Djalili. Each act will reflect on key moments in history including Elizabeth I’s Tilbury Speech and James 1 and the Gunpowder Plot. Music will be provided by a 75-piece orchestra and

The Conductor will be the award winning composer, Debbie Wiseman, whom Helen and Damien recorded the Kings and Queens CD with earlier this year.
