One favourite’s descent is another favourite’s ascent. It is the 18th century: Queen Anne lays old and sick in bed and is drinking copious amounts of brandy as she fortifies herself in preparation for the meeting between herself and her childhood friend, confidante and adversary, Sarah Churchill, Duchess of Marlborough. Brandy explores the characters of two powerful women, the interpersonal politics waged in the monarch’s bedchamber, private backstairs and the corridors of court, and the effect their friendship had on a nation. Brandy was first performed at South London Theatre as part of their new writing programme in 2010.
