Mary Queen of Scots rots in jail, but rebellion is brewing. The exiled monarch, a threat to her cousin Queen Elizabeth, pins her hopes on a secret band of conspirators. Scheming politicians, a double agent, and an honest jailer play their parts, and soon the two powerful women will meet, each desperate to defend her country. Peter Oswald's vibrant adaptation of Friedrich Schiller's Romantic masterpiece explores the price of freedom and the passion of defiance.
