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 2018 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.

Robert Icke previously directed Hamlet, Uncle Vanya, Oresteia, Mr Burns and 1984 for the Almeida, and The Red Barn for the National Theatre.
