A dramatic transformation awaits 15 actors who are set to play Mary Queen of Scots in a brand new show dedicated to the doomed Scottish monarch at The Edinburgh Dungeon.

The Cursed Crown will be part of the Dungeon’s 70-minute long tour, which features 11 live actors shows. These hair-raising performances bring to life a host of characters, including notorious Galloway-based cannibal, Sawney Bean, Edinburgh’s most prolific witch, Agnes Finnie and Auld Reekie serial killers, Burke and Hare.

Stuart Jarman, The Edinburgh Dungeon’s General Manager said:

“More than 400 years after Mary’s death, she remains a fascinating figure. Here at the Dungeon we specialise in creating strongly researched, novel, scary, fun and engaging historical experiences with amazing actors, scenes –and even smells. We wanted to tell Mary’s story afresh in our Dungeon-like way, capturing the imagination of old and young alike.”
