About ‘Mary Stuart’ at CST’s Courtyard Theater
After a single, clandestine meeting where both women’s ambitions are unmasked, the fate of two countries is decided. Jenn Thompson, former artistic director of The Actors Company Theater, (named “Company of the Year” by The Wall Street Journal during her tenure), stages Peter Oswald’s electrifying take on this fascinating drama.
Mary Stuart runs through April 15 in the Chicago Shakespeare Theater’s Courtyard Theater. Tickets are available online.
