These three powerful plays, rooted in history, and perhaps showing the trajectory leading to our world today, are written from a sensibility both ironic and religious. Through the reader’s Imagination, the words spring strongly from the printed page, as they would were one to hear them in performance.

THE SONG FROM HAMLET’S WOUND: a re-telling of the Hamlet tale re-set to the end of the Viking age. It is dramatized in the speech of the sagas: a strange fusion of formality, unsettling directness, ur-slang, and occasional Skaldic verse. GOD’S FOOL is a new look at Thomas More, The Man For All Seasons. ELIZABETH AND ALEXANDRA: to the familiar story of the last Tsar of Russia is added that of Tsarina Alexandra’s sister Elizabeth (both, granddaughters of Queen Victoria). When Elizabeth’s husband, the Governor General of Moscow, is assassinated she becomes a nun, pre-figuring Mother Theresa of Calcutta in caring for the orphans, the dying, the poor.
