Overview

After receiving critical acclaim as part of a sold-out season at the Almeida Theatre in 2016-2017, Robert Icke’s captivating new adaptation of Mary Stuart makes its exciting West End transfer next year. The show will play a limited run at London’s Duke of York’s Theatre between the 13th January to 31st March 2018.

Two monarchs sit in London. One on the throne. One in a jail cell. As the fate of the country hangs in the balance. Freidrich Schiller's brutal political tragedy depicts the last days of Mary, Queen of Scots, taking the audience behind the scenes on some of British history’s most critical and formative moments.

The roles of Elizabeth I and Mary Stuart will be portrayed by the five time Olivier Award nominee Juliet Stevenson (Hamlet, Measure for Measure, Yerma) and the incredible Lia Williams (Oresteia, Skylight). The actors will trade the play’s central roles, determined at each performance by the flip of a coin.

Juliet Stevenson is a RADA trained actor, part of the ‘new wave’ of performers to graduate from the institution such as Alan Rickman, Kenneth Branagh, Imelda Staunton and Fiona Shaw. She was awarded the Olivier Award for Best Actress for her seminal role as Paulina in Death and the Maiden and has worked extensively in television, boasting BAFTA nominations for A Doll's House, The Politician's Wife and Accused.

Lia Williams who early in her career received Critics' Circle Theatre Award for Most Promising Newcomer has gone on to appear regularly at the National Theatre and with the Royal Shakespeare Company. She has previously worked with Icke on his version of Aeschylus’ Oresteia which also transferred from the Almeida to the West End.

These two immeasurably talented performers beautifully portray the two sides of the regal coin, whichever version audiences manage to catch they are promised a unique and hauntingly compelling tale from beginning to end.

Recommended for

British history buffs and fans on the Almeida’s classical seasons should not miss their second chance to catch this emotive, compelling drama.
