Mary Said What She Said is the testimony of Mary Queen of Scots drawn from her letters about her involvement in some of the most notorious plots of her time. She is lying, but on the eve of death has fear persuaded her that she is telling the truth? Queen Mary is in fact telling the truth about her last love. The title refers to the damning testimony against her by one of her ladies—her four closest attendants were each called Mary.
Robert Wilson directs this monologue by Darryl Pinckney with Isabelle Huppert in a production by the Théâtre de la Ville, Paris.
