LA Theater Works: Mary Stuart
In Freidrich Schiller's classic work, Elizabeth I of England is threatened by the survival of her Catholic cousin, Mary Stuart. Wrestling with her own conscience, the Queen agonizes over Mary's fate, amidst fears for her own life. Court intrigue has never been more gripping than in this "acute study in the art of double-dealing politics." (The New York Times )
Mary Stuart stars Jill Gascoine as Elizabeth and Alex Kingston as Mary. The broadcast includes an interview with Jane Dunn, author of Elizabeth and Mary: Cousins, Rivals, Queens.
