For a Queen to stand, a Queen must fall. Janet McTeer and Harriet Walter recreate their acclaimed performances in Friedrich Schiller's account of the extraordinary relationship between England's Elizabeth I and her cousin, Mary Queen of Scots, Elizabeth's rival to the throne. With its behind-the-scenes intrigue, scheming and betrayal, this translation has the contemporary feel of a modern-day political thriller.
