Summary This 1800 drama written by the great German poet and dramatist Friedrich Schiller is about the conflict between Queen Elizabeth I of England and her royal rival, Mary, Queen of Scots. The play dramatizes the point in time in which Elizabeth had to decide the fate of Mary, who she had captured and imprisoned.
Our Recommendation Beautifully adapted by Peter Oswald, Mary Stuart is an excellent play that examines a historical period fraught with religious and political tensions, embodied by the main characters of Elizabeth and Mary. Issues of loyalty, love, jealousy, obsession, redemption, and the personal cost of power also come into play in the drama. Directed by Phyllida Lloyd (Mamma Mia), this production boasts a wonderful cast headed by the amazing Janet McTeer and Harriet Walter.
