Frobisher's Gold, Paperback / softback Book

Frobisher's Gold Paperback / softback

Part of the Oberon Modern Plays series


When pirate-turned-explorer Martin Frobisher discovers a new land in the Arctic filled with riches, the Queen glimpses a golden future of wealth, prestige and influence.

Charmed by tales of the exotic singing 'Esquimaux' who live there, Elizabeth invests heavily to bring 'Civilisation to the natives', and their assets home to England. "Frobisher's Gold" blends history, comedy and politics in a tale of imperial desire, improbable coincidences and bad dentistry.

This tale of ice, gold, love, betrayal and the perils of bad teeth, stars Janet Suzman in a production by Menagerie Theatre and opens at the Junction Theatre, Cambridge in October 2006.
