The Intrigue of Mary Stuart at Henry Lawson Theatre

Two incredibly powerful women, one sits on the throne, and the other is locked in a cell.

Following an uprising, Mary (Rebecca Fletcher) fled Scotland only to be imprisoned in England. Elizabeth (Nicole Smith) feels threatened – Mary is younger, more beloved, and has a claim to the throne.

At a different time, the cousins could have been allies. Friends. But history took them down another path, and it is a world where deceitful men rule, plot and fight to maintain their power.
