Captive Queen

Director: Barrie Rutter; Written by: John Dryden

The Captive Queen is a re-imagining of John Dryden's Restoration drama, Aureng-zebe, transferred to the dying days of the great woollen mills in north England.

It tells the story of an ageing Emperor and his governor rueing the loss of their youth and beauty, whilst two fratricidal sons are emboldened by their victory in war to begin a war of love.

All four of them are besotted by the same Captive Queen, and what follows is an exploration of old age, the allure of power, and the bewildering effects of lust and desire.
