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 richly intellectual spectacle.' Daily Mail

★★★★★ 'An electrifying production' The Observer
