Mary Stuart

The Almeida Theatre in Islington, North London, has a stellar reputation and has presented various shows over the years that have gone on to great success in the West End. This tradition is cemented in 2018 as Mary Stuart, Robert Icke’s adaptation of the Friedrich Schiller classic, makes its way to the Duke of York’s Theatre.

Once again events will centre on the titular Mary and another queen in the form of Elizabeth I, but on this occasion it will be Juliet Stevenson and Lia Williams alternating in the parts. But whereas many alternating parts are scheduled in alternating nights, audiences and performers will never know who is playing what part in advance. Instead, this is decided after each performance of Mary Stuart has begun.

It will make for a unique and spontaneous evening and judging by the reaction to the show in North London this will have a profound effect on West End audiences.

We meet two contrasting queens in Mary Stuart, with both Mary and Elizabeth leading very different lives. One is the Queen of England and the other Mary Queen of Scots, whose fate is known to history. Schiller’s original play dates back to the beginning of the 19th century and Icke has now revamped it for the 21st, with the stellar performances of Stevenson and Williams propelling the tale to new heights.

After all, Juliet Stevenson has had a presence on our screens and the stage for decades now, winning a Laurence Olivier Award in 1992 for Death And The Maiden at the Duke of York’s Theatre. Her credits include Happy Days at the Young Vic, The Heretic at the Royal Court Theatre and The Seagull at the National Theatre, to name but a few, whilst many will also recognise her from films like Truly Madly Deeply and Mona Lisa Smile.

So whether Stevenson or Williams plays Mary or Elizabeth audience are in for a memorable night as Robert Icke directs his wonderful interpretation of Friedrich Schiller’s classic. More than two centuries since the original text was first seen it proves to be a show with a lot of life left in it.

Mary Stuart runs at the Duke of York’s Theatre from Thursday 25th January 2018 (previews from Saturday 13th January 2018).
