BSL-English and Live Captioning ava

Mary is not just Queen of Scots, but Queen of the movies. Like the plays, songs and ballads, the films from cinema's earliest days have portrayed the Mary we love to know - passionate, headstrong, and with a dash of adulterous spice. In this illustrated talk, Donald Smith celebrates the Mary of legend, while inviting the equally interesting Mary of history to step out of the silver screen shadows.

Donald Smith is an author, storyteller, and Director of the Scottish International Storytelling Festival since 1989. His many publications include Storytelling Scotland, Ballad of the Five Marys, A Pilgrim Guide to Scotland, Wee Folk Tales in Scots and Folk Tales from the Garden. Donald has also staged over a hundred plays; and was a moving force behind the Scottish Storytelling Centre, and a National Theatre for Scotland.
