Queen of Scots

Rutherglen Reformer - - The Ticket - Theatre

East Kil­bride Rep’s fi­nal play of this sea­son is Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off. This tells the story of the bit­ter ri­valry be­tween Mary Queen of Scots and her cousin, El­iz­a­beth I of Eng­land, told with bound­less wit by one of Scot­land ’s most pop­u­lar play­wrights Liz Lochhead. Mary Stu­art has re­turned from France to rule Scot­land, a land she nei­ther knows nor un­der­stands and is ill pre­pared to rule in her own right. The drama draws out the ten­sion be­tween the two Queens, be­tween Scot­land and Eng­land, be­tween Catholic and Protes­tant and be­tween men and women. The play runs at the Vil­lage Theatre till Satur­day.
