ARTS RICHMOND Presents
Mary, Queen of Scots and Elizabeth I of England. Two powerful monarchs on a single island. Threatened by voices who believed no woman could govern. Besieged by secret plots, devastating betrayals and a terrible final act. Only one queen could survive to rule all.
Join us to celebrate this Times History Book of the Year and the inspiration behind the Hollywood film, Mary Queen of Scots. Rival Queens brings us a fresh Mary: a tragic heroine, irresistibly real and relevant.
Kate Williams is an author, social historian, professor of history and broadcaster, appearing regularly on television.
Kate will be joined in conversation with prominent journalist York Membery.
