The Almeida Theatre’s acclaimed production of Friederich Schiller’s Mary Stuart, which stars Juliet Stevenson and Lia Williams in alternating roles, is now playing the Duke of York’s Theatre in London’s West End. The limited run began performances January 13 and is scheduled through March 31.
Directed by Robert Icke, who also wrote the new adaptation, the actors’ roles are determined by an onstage coin toss just prior to each performance.
