The cast who’ll be joining Juliet Stevenson and Lia Williams in the West End transfer of Robert Icke’s new adaptation of Mary Stuart has been announced.
Stevenson and Williams will reprise their roles, as will Rudi Dharmalingam (Mortimer), David Jonsson (Davison), John Light (Leicester), Carmen Munroe (Kennedy), Eileen Nicholas (Melville) and Daniel Rabin (Kent).
Joining the cast are Michael Byrne (Talbot), Christopher Colquhoun (Paulet), Calum Finlay (Aubespine) and Elliot Levey (Burleigh).
Following a critically acclaimed, sold-out season at the Almeida Theatre in 2016-17, the production will open at the Duke of York’s Theatre from 15 January for a limited run before visiting Theatre Royal Bath, Salford Lowry and Cambridge Arts Theatre.
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.
Friedrich Schiller’s political tragedy takes us behind the scenes of some of British history’s most crucial days. Two Queens. One in power. One in prison. It’s all in the execution.
This “electrifying update of Schiller’s royal drama” (The Observer) is now booking for its West End transfer, HERE.
