By Victorine Pontillon
After William Shakespeare’s Henry VI

Margaret of Anjou In Souliloquy was directed by Victorine Pontillon and Tilly Lunken for Cycle One of In Souliloquy. It was performed by Victorine Pontillon.

In Souliloquy is co-devised and produced by Tilly Lunken and Victorine Pontillon.

In the Henry plays Margaret morphs into a powerful monarch that unleashes the War of the Roses on England.

Our Margaret owns that history, she doesn’t need to sleep – but she still has to live with herself and she is haunted by how she will be remembered as something less than human.

What I love most about this piece is how much Victorine inhabits this character - she knows her so well - there is an intensity and focus to it that just pulls you right through. Listen to it. It's mesmirising.
