1 Male, 5 Female

Jason Grote from Schiller Price: $9.99

Up-and-coming cartoonist Stuart fights to keep the lid on his mother’s and aunts’ simmering angst

But the family’s secrets channel themselves into a bizarre shapeshifter that guzzles soda, communicates by fax, and spouts old German verse

Friedrich Schiller’s classic tale of warring queens inspires this gothic romp through the weirder side of suburban America


“Grote has made a name for himself in recent years with scripts that explode the boundaries between the ordinary and the chimerical, the political and the aesthetic, the intimate and the dizzyingly cosmic” ~ Washington Post

“An ingenious tale, and mined with offbeat, explosive devices” ~ Seattle Times

Maria/Stuart is a cleverly built, well-concealed pit trap. At first, the play seems like a pleasant stroll through a family of comical, middle-class eccentrics—in just a few steps, it plunges into a dark subterranean maze” ~ The Stranger

“Absolutely astonishing. Tremendous writing, incredible acting. And laughs. Big laughs” ~ DC Theatre Scene
