May Queen

Author(s): Frankie Meredith
Company: Belgrade Theatre in co-production with Paines Plough
Running time: 1h 10min approx

May Day in Coventry, 2022. Sixteen-year-old Leigh has been chosen as May Queen. She’s buzzin', as is the rest of the city.

The cider is flowing and St George’s flag is flying—but during Cov’s festivities, our Queen is inevitably toppled.

As the year moves on in the City of Peace and Reconciliation, Leigh must face up to the events of that hot May Day, and dig deep within her past and our city’s history to ask—how did she get here? And how does she get out?
