PAGEANT WAGON is proud to present: MARY STUART, Queen of Scots, by Friedrich Schiller.
Schiller, a passionate champion for free spirits, is Germany’s most Romantic thinker and is perceived as a literary giant. The author of the lyrics to 'Ode to Joy' is one of the most performed playwrights on the continent, yet his plays are rarely staged in Ireland. PAGEANT WAGON hopes to remedy this by producing this classical masterpiece and staging it in the majestic surrounding of the FREEMASONS' HALL on 17 Molesworth Street.
MARY STUART depicts the final days of Mary, Queen of Scots, who has been imprisoned by her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. The frenzied action of the play revolves around a fictitious attempt to rescue Mary and Elizabeth’s indecision whether or not to have her executed. One of the highlights of the play is the imagined meeting of the two Queens.
