Coming Soon: John Jesurun's LIZ ONE

Black-Eyed Susan plays Elizabeth I of England as revealed through her private diaries. She struggles with a revolving set of presences to disentangle, un-write and finally rewrite her own biography. These intensely reflected histories include her perceptions regarding her five estranged children, their fathers, her own father, her hidden relationship with Buddhism and finally her disastrous attempt to invade North Africa. She inter-reacts with the kaleidoscopic array of ideas and characters through Jesurun's multi-dimensional use of language and technology. Jesurun and Black-Eyed Susan are long time collaborators having first worked together in Jesurun's 1984 production of "Red House".
