Friedrich Schiller’s classic play, in an acclaimed translation by Peter Oswald, brings to life a dramatic interpretation of the clash between the imprisoned Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots and her rival Queen Elizabeth I. This unique and exciting production crafts a compelling portrait of a tragic heroine rising above her suffering to gain absolution and spiritual enlightenment. In contrast, Elizabeth, in turmoil over the correct course of action for her country and trapped by the cruel demands of her court, can insure her sovereignty only at a terrible moral cost. Ignited by a fictitious meeting of the two women, this dramatic political battle of the two titular queens reveals equal parts human tragedy and an emotional war of words that echo throughout history.
