Why See Mary Stuart?

Transferring to the West End!

Following its critically celebrated engagement at the Almeida Theatre during the 2017/18 season, Robert Icke's groundbreaking modern interpretation of Frederick Schillers 1800 drama makes its transfer to the West End, at the Duke Of York's Theatre. Juliet Stevenson and Lia Williams both reprise their alternating roles, decided on performance night by the flip of a coin!

First performed in Weimar Germany in 1800, Schiller's historical thriller incorporates several historical events into the narrative, with a fair amount of artistic license by the playwright. Held prisoner by her cousin because of her claim to the English throne, Mary tries desperately to gain a reprieve from execution for the supposed murder of her husband; meanwhile, Elizabeth is torn by her choice whether or not to free Mary out of familial love, or execute her to secure her place on the throne.

However, events quickly spiral for the two women as a plot to free Mary and place her on the throne is exposed, and an ill-fated meeting between the women leads to explosive consequences for them both - and the future of the country.
