in a new version by Peter Oswald

The Play

One will rule. One will fall. Two extraordinary women clash in a power play over the right to rule. Elizabeth I, Queen of England, must decide the fate of her jailed cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots, accused of treason. After a single, clandestine meeting where both women’s ambitions are unmasked, the fate of two countries is decided. Jenn Thompson, former artistic director of The Actors Company Theater, (named “Company of the Year” by The Wall Street Journal during her tenure), stages Peter Oswald’s electrifying take on this fascinating drama.
