Mary Stuart, one of the great classics of European theatre, depicts the last days of Mary Queen of Scots.  Mary Stuart is imprisoned in England for the murder of her husband Darnley but more importantly for her claim to the English throne, which at that time was held by her cousin Queen Elizabeth I.  The play imagines a meeting between the two rivals and explores the possible conversation between Elizabeth, the cold-hearted politically driven Queen, who will do anything to hold onto her throne and Mary Stuart, the figurehead for Catholic revolutionaries conspiring to overthrow the virgin Queen.
