Mary, Queen of Scots
I wrote a version of this sketch back in 2010 for a Blind Mirth sketch show, which I performed live with the hilarious Emma Rettie at the Byre Theatre in St Andrews. When the new major Mary, Queen of Scots film was announced Emma and fellow Blind Mirth alumn Stephen Kelly (who also added a few lines) convinced me to bring it back!
Did you know that Mary Queen of Scots and Queen Elizabeth I apparently never spoke in person? Some speculate that they did in private but the records were destroyed. Many Hollywood films love to show their version of the secret conversation they never had. This (slightly updated!) sketch shows what I think happened…
