Upcoming Casting Notices

The Alchemy Theatre celebrates the unique voice of Canadian playwright Kate Hennig with the Texas premiere of THE VIRGIN TRIAL, scheduled for a four-week run September 1 through September 24, 2022.

THE VIRGIN TRIAL brings us the shocking story of fifteen-year-old Elizabeth the First before she was Queen. Exploring the contemporary themes of victim shaming, sexual consent, and the extraordinary ability of girls becoming women, this teen-aged daughter of Henry VIII and Anne Boleyn takes on the English monarchy, convincing them of her innocence and her greatness to eventually become the Virgin Queen and reign for 45 years – a reign generally considered one of the most glorious in English history.
