THE crows are circling at the Tron as the Scottish Youth Theatre presents one of the country’s best-known modern plays.

Liz Lochhead’s Mary Queen of Scots Got Her Head Chopped Off is part of a summer series of Independence? productions.

This grisly pantomime focuses on the relationship (and rivalry) between the queens of north and south — and sadly, we all know how it ends. Join narrator and ringmaster La Corbie as she follows Mary — a queen ruled by heart, not head — on her fateful journey to the chopping block.

It’s a contemporary classic, and one which SYT will no doubt take pains to do justice to.

Play runs at the Tron until Saturday, August 10, 7.30pm. Tickets £10 from 552 4267.
