About the Play 
Enigmatic, flamboyant and unpredictable, with a passion for philosophy and the arts, Sweden’s Queen Christina seeks to make her country the most sophisticated in Europe. But her personal aspirations – and her unconventional sexuality – put her profoundly at odds with her culture’s expectations of her, both as a monarch and as a woman.
