Tickets are on sale for The Children of the Queen’s Writ, a world premiere play that is the second production of Texas Woman’s University’s division of theatre’s 2022-23 season.

Written by TWU associate professor Steven Young and directed by Patrick Bynane, PhD, the play examines the impact of an obscure 16th-century law that permitted the abduction of juveniles for the elite Chapel Choir of St. Paul’s, which became the justification for the trafficking of boys in Elizabethan theatre. It tells the story of young Thomas Clifton, plucked from the streets of London, beaten and forced to perform on the London stage.

Though set in Elizabethan England, The Children of the Queen’s Writ probes the fine line between exploitation and entertainment and the role we may play in blurring that line.

Performance times are:

  • Wednesday, Nov. 16, 8 p.m.
  • Thursday Nov. 17, 8 p.m.
  • Friday, Nov. 18, 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 19, 2 p.m.
  • Saturday, Nov. 19, 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, Nov. 20, 2 p.m.

All performances take place at the Redbud Theater Complex on the north side of Hubbard Hall on TWU’s Denton campus. Tickets are $5 for students and seniors and $10 for general admission. Tickets can be purchased online in advance or in person at the box office one hour prior to curtain. Saturday afternoon’s performance will have a cash-only, pay-what-you-can option available at the box office. Patrons must bring proof of purchase for tickets purchased online. Students should bring a valid student ID.

The cast of The Children of the Queen’s Writ features TWU theatre undergraduates Adrian Theisen, Mina Clark-Miller, Brooklyn Long, Ash Vance, Isabelle Malone, Brenna Petersen, Dharma Saiz, Ray Lancaster, Jasmine Cintora, Gwen Webb and graduate students LeeAnn Ducker and Austin Creswell

This production features designs from undergraduates Daniel Sandoval (sound), Obrey Minor (properties) and Tanvi Khanduri (lighting). Undergraduate Olivia Andrade is the assistant director. Assistant professor Justin Ashley is technical director and lighting designer, production manager Misty Clark is makeup designer and associate professor Rhonda Gorman is scenic and costume designer.
