Helen Thomson performs a scene from Mary Stuart
Fresh from her role as the matriarch Antonia in riotous comedy No Pay? No Way!, Helen Thomson revisits her towering performance as Queen Elizabeth I in Kate Mulvany’s brilliant adaptation of Friedrich Schiller’s Mary Stuart. Although there is no record of Mary and Elizabeth ever meeting, this short scene imagines a confrontation between the two queens. Here, Elizabeth charts her path to the throne, and reflects upon her time locked away in prison and the women lost to the bloody power struggles of Tudor England.
