by Friedrich Schiller
in a new translation by Peter Oswald

The legendary clash over the British throne between the brilliant Protestant Queen Elizabeth I and her formidable Catholic cousin Mary Queen of Scots has captivated audiences for 500 years. Peter Oswald’s 2005 translation of Schiller’s 1800 German classic thrillingly locates their relationship at the dangerous intersection of gender, religion, and politics.

“Bad behavior and power struggles are always in style, and there’s no juicier plot than this face-off between two ambitious super-women.” – New York Magazine
