Ralegh stalks the Great Hall once more to great acclaim
Winchester playwright’s ‘passionate and moving’ script
On Friday and Saturday, Sir Walter Ralegh once again walked in the Great Hall in Winchester where he was tried for treason in 1603. 2TimeTheatre staged an original one-act play about this charismatic adventurer, poet and pirate in this unique setting in the 400th anniversary year of his execution for treason.
Accompanied by renaissance music group, Courtlye Musick, and directed by Alice Kornitzer, Jilly Bond (Elizabeth I), Adam Kotz (Ralegh) and Lizzie Garland (Bess) brought Rachel O’Neill’s script to vibrant and dramatic life over three sell-out performances as part of Winchester Heritage Open Days Festival of history and culture.’
