For one to rule, one must fall. Elizabeth I, Queen of England, must decide the fate of her cousin, Mary, Queen of Scots, imprisoned and accused of treason. Surrounded by a cadre of men jockeying for power, each queen contends¬†with seduction, greed, and deception in a political power play with deadly stakes. A single, clandestine meeting lays all ambitions bare, with the fate of both—and the future of the budding British Empire—on the line. Peter Oswald’s tense, thrilling adaptation is staged by Jenn Thompson on a grand scale in the Courtyard Theater, creating an Elizabethan world as vibrant and imposingly powerful as these charismatic, unconventional royal peers.
