Ira Avneri | Maria Stuart

Two queens fighting each other within a masculine space that closes in on them, a theatrical arena in which friend and foe, jailer and jailed, are indistinguishable. A unique adaptation of Friedrich Schiller’s renowned play that delves into the final days of the struggle between Elizabeth the First, Queen of England, and her cousin Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, incarcerated for years in an English castle for allegedly conspiring to usurp Elizabeth's throne and revert the kingdom back to Catholicism.
