Synopsis

The Tower of London provides the setting for this provocative play. Two cleaning women come to scrub down a forgotten room and are visited by the spirits of the ladies who met death inside the dark walls. Each is doomed by her own bitterness to walk the Tower. What is particularly interesting is their youth: Lady Jane Grey (15), Queen Catherine Howard (19) and Lady Rochford (18). Much of the dialogue is taken directly from historical record. In a brief overlapping of the present and the past, there is a touching scene of communication and understanding that sets the embittered women free of their bondage to the past.

Customer Reviews

"The Ladies of the Tower is a wonderful vehicle for my drama club that is mainly girls. Suspense and history are wonderfully entwined."
Review by Ruby Grove, Fisher I.S.D., Fisher, MN
"Ladies of the Tower allows the actresses to get involved in the lives of executed nobles very close to their own ages (high school). It made history come alive and be more relevant."
Review by Bill Oates, Rensselaer High School, Rensselaer, Ind.
