Tragedy in five acts by Friedrich Schiller

A production of the Akademietheater Ulm

England, 1587. Elizabeth, Queen of England, holds Mary, Queen of Scotland, captive. Mary, expelled from Scotland as a murderer of her husband, had sought protection at Elizabeth. But the illegitimate Elisabeth views her cousin only as a rival queen and a rival woman. A law, specially tailored to Mary, allows Elisabeth to indict Mary as part of a conspiracy and to condemn her to death. Mary now hopes to move the cousin to a meeting and sends a request in a letter in which she wants to soften the hearts of her relative. Simultaneously followers of Mary secretly plan the liberation of the Scottish queen. But Elizabeth and her faithful treasurer Burleigh have other plans ….
