Mary Stuart


After four months of rehearsals AS Theatre Studies students gave two haunting and powerful performances of Mary Stuart this week. The run culminated in their exam performance on Wednesday night. Though performing for 60% of their final AS grade the actors didn't let the pressure show and gave intense, spell binding and harrowing performances which displayed a maturity far in advance of their years.

Mary Stuart was originally written by Schiller and adapted in a new version by Peter Oswald before being performed at The Donmar and most recently on Broadway. The harrowing play explores one of history's most fascinating relationships between Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots.
