SCHILLER

MARY STUART  

Directed by Philip Prowse, Fidelis played Queen Elizabeth

“Fidelis Morgan’s frosty venomous Elizabeth rises to Philip Prowse’s production with blazing conviction”. The Sunday Times

The performance of Fidelis Morgan reaches considerable heights of expression…a stridently autocratic ‑ and very convincing ‑ portrayal of the English Queen  The Scotsman

A wonderfully memorable Elizabeth The List

But the evening undoubtedly belonged to Ann Mitchell and Fidelis Morgan who gave real stature to the two very different royal women…Fidelis Morgan, in turns irresolute and domineering as Elizabeth, was always every inch an absolute monarch  Plays and Players

Elizabeth’s imperious bark and cutting edge are sovereignly done by Fidelis Morgan   The Glasgow Herald

Queen Elizabeth’s costume for this production was made of duvets, jewels and other heavy items and it took two dressers to lift it on as it weighed about 5 stone. It is now used as a demo to children who think they might WANT to be an actress.
