Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off
At King's Head Theatre
Exploring the rivalry and mutual fascination between Mary Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I, Liz Lochhead’s Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off re-tells this murky tale of political and sexual intrigue with ferocious wit and innovation and examines Mary's legacy through the eyes of Corbie, a carrion crow who is her unseen attendant through life and death. Previously only seen in London for one week at the Donmar Warehouse in 1987, it will get its first full London season, 25 years after its Scottish premiere, directed by Olivier Award Winning La Bohème director Robin Norton-Hale at the King’s Head Theatre, Islington, from Wednesday 29 May - Saturday 22 June.
Duration of performance:
1 hour 15 minutes
