Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off & Dracula


Liz Lochhead

Published by Penguin

"It draws the most dramatic and uncomfortable parallels bewteen the sacrifice of Mary in her day and the myriad sexual, political and religious deformities that still plague the Scottish psyche ... a play that blasts Mary's myths not out of mindless radicalism, but because it has something important to say about her and about us, about womanhood and the nation" - The Guardian. "... Dracula shrugs off all those fanged Hammer spoof and restores real tragedy to Bram Stoker's tale ... in this powerful and poetic version ... The outpourings of a madman paradoxically reveal the sort of sanity Lear's Fool supplies and he becomes, in his chains and straitjacket, an image of the chaotic, unacceptable truth within us all" - The Guardian
