Ambitious, Confusing

See it if The play itself is pretty interesting, especially if you are somewhat familiar with British history and the story of Mary Queen of Scots.

Don't see it if Acting, directing and staging are mediocre. The play itself is long enough, so adding pantomime and contemporary music doesn't help

60
Slow, Thought-provoking, Intelligent

See it if You enjoy historical dramas and like small productions with a lot of monologues. Great female leads but lack a balanced counterpart

Don't see it if The modern approach of the play fell short and some of the performances although passionate felt long and overwhelming.
