MARY QUEEN OF SCOTS
Feb 22 - 25, **No evening shows Sun 2/24! Matinee only at 1pm**
Two powerful performances fuel this spectacular historical costume drama. Set in 1561, Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird) is the young charismatic, and Catholic, Mary Stuart, returned to Scotland to reclaim her birthright after the death of her husband, King of France. Margo Robbie (I, Tonya) plays the role of Protestant Queen Elizabeth I, Mary’s cousin, who rules the British Empire. Rivals in power and love these two women both assert their independence and claim to the throne, even as the men around them work to foil their efforts. This is the feature debut of acclaimed stage director Josie Rourke.
