As audiences who caught this astonishing play at Tara Theatre will know, it showcases a remarkable one-woman performance by veteran actress Eileen Page, who brings to life a formidable woman, far ahead of her time. A woman of extraordinary courage, beauty and iron will – uniquely Queen of France then Queen of England and mother of two English Kings – Eleanor of Aquitaine’s name was legendary even before her death.
