Prague Shakespeare Company joins forces with A Broad’s Way Productions for a developmental lab performance of a classic history play with an innovative, exploratory approach. Mary Stuart Winter 2015 is an avant-garde adaptation of Friedrich Schiller’s Mary Stuart set in the high-stakes, high-profile arena of a couture runway event. Two queens, and their respective houses face-off before the judgement of a powerful, influential, and status-hungry court. Mary(Ashe Kazanjian) is in danger of being sentenced to execution and Elizabeth (Bree Welch) holds the order and the inevitable consequences that follow. The project is an experimental cross-breed of theatre, film, and fashion mediums, and is created by artistic director Lindsay Taylor, fashion designer, Jiri Kalfar, choreographer Carli Jefferson, writer Phillip Hays and Morris Stuttard, and film directors David Kocar and Paul Dean among a host of other talented designers, actors, models, photographers, and filmmakers. The chopping block will be ready for this exclusive premiere December 16,17,18,19 at the Divadlo Kolowrat.
