'I am the one you do not like.'
Queen Mary I, Bloody Mary to her enemies, loves to play at dice and cards. Over a game in which the audience chooses the next card to be turned, Mary reflects on her life: her royal family, her faith, her marriage, her desperate desire for a child, and her blackened name.
Let Mary set the record straight. Choose a card so we may begin!
