“Whom shall I believe? And who shall be judge?”
Tuesday, 19 August, 1561, 9am.
Through the fog a ship arrives in Leith docks, Mary Stuart, Queen of Scots steps ashore. She is 19 and on her young shoulders rest the hopes of the Catholic establishment of Europe.
The Nation that receives her has just outlawed her church and its practices. Its leader is the radical cleric and protestant reformer, John Knox. Both believe themselves ordained by God. Both believe themselves beloved by their people. Both were exiled and returned home… but only one can make Scotland their own.
Linda McLean is a multi-award winning Scottish playwright whose work is characterised by poetry, mystery and great emotional depth. Her plays include Any Given Day; Strangers, Babies; Shimmer; One Good Beating; Riddance and many more. Artistic Director David Greig makes his Lyceum directorial debut with this World Premiere.
