A new play for the Royal Shakespeare Company

"World's moving. People moving. We've only to cross the sea. Same sea we're looking at. The world's waiting for us. We've only to take our place it." In 1936, 1974 and 1996, a woman shapes dramatic events in a rural community on the Scottish coast, reflecting the shifting political and social fabric of Britain in the 20th century. Victoria will received its World première in London at the Royal Shakespeare Company in 2000.

"David Greig is the most consistently interesting, prolific and artistically ambitious writer of his generation" (Scotsman)

Review: Victoria

User Review  - Matthew O'Hara - Goodreads

I'm currently studying to be an actor at the moment, and I am grateful we are doing this play. There is so much sub-text, so much that this play comments on. Really rich, and really deep. Would highly recommend. Read full review

I resent reading this. I am angry at my acting tutor for forcing this upon me. My performance was brilliant though. Read full review
