Trailer: Mary Stuart – theatre critics given play and performances 5 stars!
Two queens. One in power. One in prison. It’s all in the execution. Friedrich Schiller’s political tragedy Mary Stuart takes us behind the scenes of some of British history’s most crucial days.
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. It starts from 13 January 2018 for a limited run.
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. They reprise their roles from the show’s previous run.
Observer: Both roles are tremendous. But the play is not called Mary Stuart for nothing. Mary is the sympathetic heart.
How to get to:
Duke of York’s Theatre, St Martin’s Lane, London, WC2N 4BG
The nearest Tube stations are Leicester Square (Northern and Piccadilly lines) and Charing Cross (Bakerloo and Northern lines).
Leicester Square: From the station head north up Charing Cross Road. Take the first right onto Long Acre. When the road intersects with Upper St. Martin’s Lane turn left. The theatre is a two-minute walk away down the road.
Bus: There are plenty of buses operating in this area.
This gig has won praise from many theatre critics. Word is spreading and seats are filling. The success at the Almeida means only one thing. It needs to be seen on the West End
