Maiden. Monarch. Superfreak. The Queen’s in town

Monarch. Maiden. Superfreak. She makes lady Godiva look like a saint, but then again it’s not easy being a Queen

Queensland Performing Arts Centre (QPAC) is delighted to announce the imminent arrival of Elizabeth, but she’s more infamous than famous this time round.

What her Royal Redness lacks in demure, she makes up for in outrageous antics, neurotic tendencies and scandalous behaviour. But can we blame her with her throne and sanity at stake? Or the continuous pesky coups and conspiracies? And to make matters worse hunky heartbreaker Robert Essex is due to arrive and Her Majesty is in no condition to receive guests. Unless she indulges in a bit of leech-o-suction and a bee sting booblifet….

Nobel Prize winner Dario Fo offers a humorously marvelous modern stage masterpiece of original 16th century commedia dell’arte. You’ll be amused to no end with its transcendental tendencies towards language and culture but you’ll also gain an entertaining insight into the challenges of womanhood.

Elizabeth has got bawdy burlesque, arrogance towards authority, explosive energy and lashings of free spirit. It’s a performance catered for anyone with a love for laughing and slight affection for shock value. Hold off if you are offended by colourful language or your ears will be ringing for days.

QPAC is the Queensland’s premier performing arts centre. It fosters an environment of innovation, creativity, entrepreneurship and learning. The Centre is driven by a desire to entertain, a capacity to create and the genuine wish to support moving and memorable experiences

Tickets can be purchased through the Qpac website at

Performance runs from 26 May to 24 Jun 2012
