Mary Stuart tickets are now available! Robert Icke's new adaptation has transferred to the Duke of York's theatre and promises to be one of the most talked about shows of the season!

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.

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 15 January for a limited run.

Book your Mary Stuart tickets in advance to avoid disappointment!

Malcolm Summerfield5th April

Electrifying performances by both the leading ladies. Only, slightly off-putting was the fact that a number of the male actors were wearing rather "clumpy" shoes that resounded on the wood floor of the circular stage.

Ricki Hayut4th April

ABSOLUTELY MESMERIZING AND BREATH-TAKING, GENIUS IN ITS SIMPLICITY, THAT IS THE RESULT OF PROFOUND UNDERSTANDING, TOUR DE FORCE OF DIRECTING AND ACTING, UNFORGETTABLE STAGE IMAGES - CHALLENGING TO BOTH PERFORMERS AND AUDIENCE - AND ALTHOUGH WRITTEN IN THE 18TH CENTURY, IT'S TOTALLY RELEVANT. UNFORGETTABLE - BRAVO!

Mr John Fairhurst1st April

Best play I have seen for a very long time!

Ann Bond1st April

I saw the play 7 times and loved it. I wept each time Mary said goodbye to her girls . I favoured Lia Williams as Mary and Juliet Stevenson as Elizabeth.

Masako Fujiwara31st March

stunningly powerful and intense.

I was unable to attend due to illness. When I phoned to explain - at 5pm - the agent told me it was too late and the theatre would never agree to a change at such a late time. This has not been my experience when dealing directly with a theatre. I lost out all round. Disappointing. As I have to rate the production, I am doing so based on press reviews and friends' recommendations.

Super acting by all. Grips you from the start. Theatre at it's best.

Ann Edwards30th March

Wonderful acting - near perfect illusion despite the absence of spectacle. Much of the dialogue was lost. If you speak quietly on stage or with your back to the audience you deliberately prevent many spectators from hearing the words. I conclude words have stopped having any importance.

Sally Ann Wilkinson29th March

Really interesting interpretation of story would now like to see actresses paying other parts - really enjoyed

frances duncan29th March

Oh.my.goodness. We were captivated from start to finish by the performers, the script, the set. What a powerful, compelling, heart breaking piece of theatre.

Jonathan Kranz26th March

THIS is what theater can be, should be, is meant to be. My wife and I saw the matinee performance last Saturday (I'm writing this on a Monday) and I'm still shaking. Go. Be transformed.

Simon Crisp25th March

Fantastic production. Performances were spellbinding.
