For a Queen to stand, a Queen must fall…
Tony Award winner Janet McTeer and Olivier Award winner Harriet Walter — who both starred in the critically acclaimed London production of Mary Stuart — reprise their roles on Broadway! Phyllida Lloyd directs.
Mary Stuart is Friedrich Schiller’s thrilling account of the extraordinary relationship between England’s Elizabeth I (Harriet Walter) and her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots (Janet McTeer), Elizabeth’s rival to the throne. With its behind the scenes intrigue, scheming and betrayal, the play has the feel of a modern-day political thriller. The play, seen here in a new version by Peter Oswald, builds to one of the most electrifying dramatic confrontations in world theatre, in which Schiller imagines a meeting between the two monarchs on the grounds at Fotheringay Castle.
The cast also includes Michael Countryman, John Benjamin Hickey, Brian Murray, Michael Rudko, Robert Stanton, Maria Tucci, Chandler Williams, and Nicholas Woodeson.
