Mary Stuart

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.

★★★★★ ‘The last act is devastatingly fine. Magnificent.’ Evening Standard

★★★★★ ‘A show to lose your head and your heart to’ Time Out

★★★★★ ‘A richly intellectual spectacle.’ Daily Mail

★★★★★ ‘An electrifying production’ The Observer

    Really excellent performance, both actresses superb. We could hear every word that was said which is sadly not always the case in theatres.

    The acting was outstanding. I loved the play. I was really interested in the psychology of the two queens their similarities and differences. They were both pawns of their time. Most interesting was the parallel to today’s world of intrigue and betrayal. How did Juliette Stevenson and Lia Williams a hive this feat and treat.

    Excellent. Strained to hear the actors sometimes - especially when their backs were to the audience. Loved the acting.
