Centering on the final days of the life of Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots, Friedrich Schiller’s intense psychological study is focused on the intersection of romantic, political, and religious betrayal, revealing vivid tension between the costs of moral righteousness and those of political expediency. Gisela Cardenas, who directed Rainer Werner Fassbinder’s brilliant Katzelmacher, returns to campus to direct this evocatively modern play.
