I dreamed I was in a Shakespearian play about Queen Anne- not the Stuart monarch but an oddly overlooked British royal who came to the throne as a child and didn't last very long. In one scene she was in hospital- not having been very well- and I was visiting as a friend- in the next her villainous uncle, played by a great British actor I couldn't quite put a name to- was plotting her downfall. I woke just after he delivered the lines, "Who speaks for this country? Take the little girl to the water. Drown her!"
