Roundabout - May Queen

May Day in Coventry, 2022. Sixteen-year-old Leigh has been chosen as May Queen, she’s buzzin, as is the rest of the city.

The cider is flowing and St George’s flag is flying – but an encounter during the day’s festivities will soon change everything.

As the year moves on in the City of Peace and Reconciliation, Leigh must face up to the events of that hot May Day, and dig deep within herself to ask – how did she get here?

Age Guidance: 12+

May Queen is written by Coventry writer Frankie Meredith and directed by Balisha Karra, Belgrade Theatre’s Co-Artistic Director for Coventry UK City of Culture 2021.
