Elizabeth I is the only unmarried woman to have ever ruled England. And she reigned for forty-four years. Mastermind. Seductress. Survivor.

Created by award-winning writer Ella Hickson and director Natalie Abrahami, Swive [Elizabeth] shines a light on the ways and means by which women in power negotiate patriarchal pressure in order to get their way.

It premiered in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse at Shakespeare's Globe, London, in December 2019.

‘My mother seduced a man so successfully that he altered the constitutional history of this country.’
