Mary Stuart

Olney Theatre Center
2001 Olney-Sandy Spring Rd. Olney

The two most powerful women of the 16th Century - Queen Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots - are on an explosive collision course in this thrilling drama of sex, power, intrigue and betrayal. Pressured by the men of her court, who desperately want her to marry and ensure the succession, the Protestant Queen Elizabeth I must decide whether to put her cousin, the Catholic Mary Queen of Scots, to death. As she tries to keep her fragile hold on both the realm and her conscience, a country fights to define itself. Artistic Director Jason Loewith adapts Schiller's classic clash of titans for the #MeToo world with six extraordinary performers and the barest of sets in an intimate performance space at the Olney Theatre Center.

"...Despite its flaws, this Mary Stuart is, overall, a remarkable production, and a must-see in terms of its evocation of human drama and the price of triumph."

"...One of Anderson's chief assets as Elizabeth is how effectively she separates her public and private personas. Steely, unflinching, unyielding, then insecure, questioning, doubtful. She is savvy and knows that a single misstep will undo her. Anderson channels contemporary powerful women from Hillary Clinton to Margaret Thatcher, showing us what women have to endure and embrace to survive in a world of men."
