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.
