S&B Presents: MARY STUART


Written by Friedrich Schiller, in a new translation by Peter Oswald.
Directed by Emma Johnson '13

FOR ONE WEEKEND ONLY.

TICKETS ARE EXTREMELY LIMITED, GET THEM EARLY!


Mary Stuart, former Queen of Scots, is imprisoned in England, where her very existence poses a threat, both personal and political, to her Protestant cousin, Elizabeth I. As Elizabeth hesitates over decreeing her rival’s fate, Mary pleads for a face-to-face meeting – but in the swirl of intrigue that surrounds both women, whom can either one trust?
