March 4 - 6 Monday – Wednesday at 7 pm Wednesday at 4pm Thalian Hall Theatre Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary Stuart (Academy Award nominated Saoirse Ronan) defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Academy Award nominated Margot Robbie). Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty. Each young Queen beholds her sister in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones - and change the course of history. Admission is $7 plus a $1 ticketing fee and tax. Tickets available at the Thalian Box office (Monday-Saturday from 2-6pm) or thalianhall.org. Showtime is 7:00pm Monday-Wednesday (unless noted) at Thalian Hall, 310 Chestnut Street.
