MARY STUART

By Friedrich Schiller, in a new adaptation created by Robert Icke

Duke of York’s Theatre

Saturday 13 January – Saturday 31 March 2018

Two queens. One in power. One in prison. It’s all in the execution.

Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out season at the Almeida in 2016-17, Robert Icke’s new adaptation of Mary Stuart will now transfer to London’s Duke of York’s Theatre from Saturday 13 January for a limited run.

The production will then visit Theatre Royal Bath from Wednesday 4 – Saturday 14 April, The Lowry, Salford Quays from Tuesday 17 – Saturday 21 April and Cambridge Arts Theatre from Monday 23 – Saturday 28 April 2018.

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.
