Mary Stuart at the Duke of York’s Theatre
Duke of York's Theatre, 45 St Martin's Lane, London, WC2N 4BG
Mary Stuart at the Duke of York’s Theatre starring Juliet Stevenson.
Two queens. One in power. One in prison. It’s all in the execution.
Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out season at the Almeida Theatre in 2016-17, Robert Icke’s new adaptation of Mary Stuart transfers to the Duke of York’s Theatre in London’s West End from 13 January for a limited run.
Schiller’s political tragedy takes us behind the scenes of some of British history’s most crucial days. Playing both Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart, Juliet Stevenson (Hamlet) and Lia Williams (Oresteia) trade the play’s central roles, decided at each performance by the toss of a coin.
Mary Stuart runs from 13 January 2018 until 31 March 2018 at the Duke of York’s Theatre.
