Plays on England narrated by St. George Sample Text:
St. George: Please! A little respect for the dead! OK so Henry VIII wouldn’ be most women’ number one choice as husband
Robin: Not if they valued their necks!
St. George: But his daughter certainly made up for his lack of heart!
Elizabeth I: Good Queen Bess! That’ what they called me!
St. George: And you certainly won the hearts of your subjects!
Victoria: And courtiers! Though I’ glad you didn’ go the way of your father
Elizabeth I: What? With six husbands? No, I was married to my country.
St. George: What a sense of duty! Like our other queen here
John: But wait a minute! Let’ not forget all those kings between these two.
Richard III: Yes. What about the Stuarts?
Victoria: What about the Stuarts? It was one of them who allowed this country to become a republic – for eleven years!
Richard III: What? No monarchy?
Robin: None! Charles the first got so carried away with his idea of ruling through Divine Right – that he failed to see that no divine power would save him from the chop!
Richard III: So who took over from him?
Robin: Initially, something called a Council of State, which appointed Oliver Cromwell, who had led the Parliamentarians or Roundheads against the King’ supporters, the Cavaliers.
Richard III: So how did we get back to having monarchs again?
Robin: Because Oliver’ successor, Richard Cromwell didn’ do a very good job at ruling either. So Parliament asked Charles II to be king!
Richard III: Wow! For an outlaw, you sure know your way around England’ ruling system!
St. George: So, where were we? Ah yes, Charles II – the Merry Monarch!
Victoria: He may have been merry but I doubt whether all his subjects shared his merriment – what with the Great Plague and the Great Fire of London!
St. George: And then that massive transformation of our country – in your reign, Ma’.
Victoria: Indeed. I was of course blessed with having the greatest brains around.
John: (Sarcastically) So modest!
Victoria: No, I don’ mean my brains! I mean those of such great men as George Stephenson, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, Isaac Newton
Robin: (Interrupting) But that Industrial Revolution also brought misery to thousands – working in terrible conditions in those factories and down those mines, to say nothing of the slums they had to live in. Just as well Charles Dickens was there to write about and point out how the people suffered
