A Visit With Queen Victoria
Using storytelling and a good dash of humor, Sally Mummey engages audiences of all ages in a dynamic, interactive, first-person portrayal of Queen Victoria. Mummey’s passion for the history of the 19th century has led to extensive research into powerful and prominent women in a male-dominated society.
In 1837, teenaged Victoria ascended to the British throne, untrained and innocent. Those who would try to usurp her power underestimated this self-willed intelligent young woman whose mettle sustained her through her 63-year reign. Using Queen Victoria's diary and letters, this program reveals the personal details of a powerful yet humane woman, who took seriously her role as monarch in a time of great expansion. She and her husband, Albert, set an example of high moral character and dedication, a novelty in the royal house after generations of scandal.
