Key facts

Playwright: Friedrich Schiller, A new adaptation created by Robert Icke.


Two queens. One in power. One in prison. It's all in the execution.

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 (Duet for One) and Lia Williams (Oresteia) trade the play's central roles, decided at each performance by the toss of a coin.
