Mary Stuart7 July 2017
THE ALMEIDA THEATRE’S ACCLAIMED PRODUCTION OF ROBERT ICKE’S NEW ADAPTATION OF MARY STUART TO OPEN IN THE WEST END, WITH JULIET STEVENSON AND LIA WILLIAMS REPRISING THEIR ROLES.
Mary Stuart by Friedrich Schiller
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 transfers to the Duke of York’s Theatre in London’s West End from Saturday 13 January for a limited run. The production will then visit Theatre Royal Bath from Wednesday 4 – Saturday 14 April, Salford Lowry 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.
