Bloody Mary: In Service to the True God - Brighton Fringe 2019

Sweet Werks - Werks 2

Rape, beheadings, burnings, and religious persecution run rife. Speeches made by the Conservative government weave through a text that explores damnation and salvation through the eyes of Mary Tudor. 'Wolf Hall' meets 'Talking Heads'. "Byrnes cleverly weaves into this character from long ago a thread of authoritarianism, received patriarchal certainty, and quasi-religious soundbiting, which has its analogue in much of contemporary politics" (The Scotsman) "Bernie C. Byrnes' clever script provided parallels with more recent characters in British history... right up-to-date" (Pauper's Press)
