WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

In case you were afraid that only kings were of interest to the great playwrights and that the only good leading roles written in the histories are for men, WSC brings you Mary Stuart. Perhaps Shakespeare portrayed Richard in a less favorable light than some historians believed fair in order to please his monarch, the granddaughter of the king who overthrew him. At any rate, it was left to the great German playwright and poet Friedrich Schiller to explore the story of that Queen, Elizabeth I, and her fierce rivalry with her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots. WSC will use the new version by Peter Osvald, which premiered at the Donmar Warehouse before traveling to the West End and then Broadway. Performed in repertory with Richard III.
