A tale of oppositions, of religious intolerance, of the fight against the powerful, Glory on Earth could easily be set in 2019. Yet it is the story of Mary, Queen of Scots’ 16th century ideological battle with John Knox, Elizabeth I and the Lords of Scotland.
Through a fragmented narrative, Mary looks back over her tumultuous life and questions the inevitability of her journey to the chopping block. Was glory on Earth ever a possibility?
BA Performance in BSL and English students bring to life this richly layered contemporary play through BSL, spoken word, digital projection and visual theatrical forms.
