Mary Stuart, Queen of Scotland, has been imprisoned under charges of attempted regicide. Her captor and cousin Queen Elizabeth I cannot bring herself to sign the death decree. In a society where woman are considered inferior, these two queens charged with ruling as kings, battle sexism, greed, lust, and climactically each other.
Peter Oswald's bold new translation of Schiller's vivid re-imagining breathes life into a Tudor world flush with subterfuge and revenge—and ruled by two extraordinary women.

This world premiere musical by the talented creative team of Stephen Gregory Smith and Matt Conner is adapted from the classic novella by Henry James. In a forlorn country estate, a sensitive young governess quickly learns that there are dark secrets surrounding the two young orphans that have been placed in her care. A foreboding sense of evil begins to envelop her, and she is soon convinced that the children are being influenced by sinister forces present at Bly. But is she imagining this? Are the apparitions that she sees real? In this fresh new take on one of literature's most gripping ghost stories, Smith and Conner take us on a thrilling psychological journey turning the screw tighter with every twist of the story. This is the first installment in Creative Cauldron's five-year "Bold New Works for Intimate Stages" commissioning project.
