Senja is a woman who is fascinated by the strange and dangerous medical lawyer, K. He calls Senja repeatedly and insists upon seeing her naked, wrapped only in cellophane. He turns out to be the challenge Senja needs to change her life in this play about a relationship about to dissolve.
Mary Stuart is Enquist’s very own interpretation of Schiller’s tragedy. It is a classical and at the same time modern game about the close relation between love and death.
