What is there to doubt when you have all the power in your nation? Come join The Bell Tower Theatre for their performance of Friedrich Schiller’s literary classic, Mary Stuart. The performance serves as capstone of the 2nd annual Summer Theatre Intensive and is presented at St. Mary’s College of Maryland in conjunction with the college’s Office of Summer and Lifelong Learning Programs. A cast of teen actors from Southern Maryland use avant garde performance modes and modern theatre practices to tell the story of Mary Queen of Scots and her bitter relationship with her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. Dripping with deceit, dangerous political power plays, and the battle between reason and passion – The Bell Tower Theatre’s innovative adaptation speaks in direct dialogue with the 2016 Presidential Election as Mary Stuart promises to give audiences the weight of a nation waiting for what comes next.
Performances: July 28, 29, and 30 at 7 pm AND July 30 at 1 pm
Tickets: $10 payable at the door
