Frobisher's Gold

Fraser Grace

PaperBack (18 Oct 2006)
When pirate-turned-explorer Martin Frobisher discovers a new land in the Arctic filled with riches, Elizabeth I glimpses a golden future of wealth, prestige and influence. Charmed by tales of the exotic singing 'Esquimaux', the Queen 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. It premiered at the Junction Theatre, Cambridge in October 2006 in a production by Menagerie Theatre.
