Peter Oswald’s thrilling adaptation of Fredrich Schiller’s Mary Stuart opens the Youth Performing Arts School’s 2015-16 season.
Whether you are fascinated by Literature, European History, Government and Politics, Humanities, or simply want to see a great story unfold, this production provides a compelling reason to come to the theatre. Mary Stuart tells the story of two iconic women, England’s Elizabeth I and her cousin Mary Queen of Scots, whose lust for power reveals one of the most thrilling displays of passion and politics the world has ever seen. With behind the scenes intrigue, scheming, and betrayal, this play also embodies the feel of the modern-day political thriller. The issues Schiller explores in the play are still relevant today: internment without trial, religious fundamentalism, a divided Europe and a Government’s search for legitimacy to act against a terrorist threat.
The play will show in the Experimental Theater on Sept. 18-19 and Sept. 25-26 at 7:30 p.m. Click here to buy tickets.
