Lost and Found Productions Season Three kicks off with the Gender Politics of 'Elizabeth Rex'

What makes a man a man and a woman a woman? In Elizabeth Rex, Queen Elizabeth I visits Shakespeare and his company on the eve of her former lover's execution. When she meets Ned, Shakespeare's brilliant performer of women's roles, the actor, the playwright and the queen come to startling revelations about sex, identity, humanity, and love.

Offers Director Patrick Brownson, “Elizabeth Rex is one of the most fascinating plays I’ve ever read. I’m a sucker for anything Elizabeth I-related, and this play does such a marvelous job presenting her in all her many facets. It also combines sexuality, gender roles and politics in a way that’s perhaps even more relevant today than it was when it was first written.”

Lost and Found Productions presents the first show of their third season – Timothy Findley’s Elizabeth Rex. Performances will be June 22 through July 14 with shows Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 PM. Tickets are $15 in advance/$20 at the door. All performances will be at The Bug Theatre at 3654 Navajo Street in Denver. Tickets and more information available online at www.lostandfoundproductions.net.
