Mary Stuart

Date: 3 Jan 2019

Mary Stuart tells the story of one of history’s great rivalries.

Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I of England are cousins but not friends. Following an uprising, Mary has fled Scotland only to be imprisoned in England.

Elizabeth feels threatened: Mary is younger, more beloved, and with her own claim to the throne. The question now is whether to release her or execute her.

It’s a battlefield of suspicion, spies and subterfuge. An empire is at stake. Hearts will be broken. And a queen’s life hangs in the balance.

Kate Mulvany adapts Friedrich Schiller’s play (first performed in 1800). Lee Lewis directs a cast featuring Helen Thomson, Caroline Brazier, Fayssal Bazzi, Simon Burke, Peter Carroll, Tony Cogin, Andrew McFarlane, Rahel Romahn, Matthew Whittet and Darcey Wilson.
