‘They did not understand, you see, that what is stitched with a needle is not always innocent… Needles are dangerous.’ It’s 1559. Mary Queen of Scots is imprisoned by her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I. Four women’s lives intersect as they sew elaborate tapestries. Through their embroidery, they have the power to change the course of history. Performed by Drama Studio London students, by special arrangement with Nick Hern Books.
