'I am the one you do not like.'

Queen Mary I, Bloody Mary to her enemies, loves to play at dice and cards. Over a game in which the audience chooses the next card to be turned, Mary reflects on her life: her royal family, her faith, her marriage, her desperate desire for a child, and her blackened name. 

Let Mary set the record straight. Choose a card so we may begin!

'A modest gem of a show ✮✮✮✮✮' The Independent 
'Clare McCaldin was magnetic throughout' Opera Magazine

“Elegant, thoughtful, current without being gimmicky and immaculately presented, Mary’s Hand is a 70-minute rebuke to the UK’s major opera companies. At the centre of it all, holding the stage with girlish, flickering fingers and a pitiless thrust of the chin is mezzo-soprano Clare McCaldin… an outstanding singer and actress” ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ The Independent

With words & direction by Di Sherlock and music by Martin Bussey, Mary’s Hand is performed by mezzo-soprano Clare McCaldin & instrumental ensemble.

Running time: 75 minutes without an interval
