Mary Stuart tells the story of the personal struggle between two extraordinary women - Queen Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots - both captive to the demands of sovereignty and both caught in a tumult of political and religious intrigue.
Which of them is the rightful Queen of England - Mary Stuart or Elizabeth Tudor?
Mary Stuart, written in 1800 by Friedrich Schiller, is presented in this thrilling new version by British playwright Mike Poulton.
Pigeonholed puts a more unique spin on it still,
with an all-female cast of 10 performing nearly 20 roles.
"What's looser than the tongue of an unmanned woman?"
