Details

It’s 1567. Meet James Melville, an intelligent, charismatic and skilled diplomat who is also one of the most loyal servants of Mary Stuart, the troubled Queen of Scots.  It’s a time of political turmoil and the shocking crimes he has witnessed have shaken him. Now he needs to decide who’s guilty, who’s innocent, and who is too dangerous to accuse.

Change is coming, but at what price?

Rona Munro’s new political thriller marks her welcome return to Hampstead after her successes with Bold Girls (1991), The Maiden Stone (1995), Snake (1999), Little Eagles (2011) and Donny’s Brain (2012). Famous for her work on Doctor Who as well as her writing for film, TV and radio, Mary is a standalone play but also a companion piece to The James Plays cycle (James I, II, and III, National Theatre of Scotland and National Theatre; James IV, Raw Material and Capital Theatres in association with National Theatre of Scotland), winner of the Evening Standard and Writers’ Guild of Great Britain Awards in 2014.

Roxana Silbert, Hampstead’s Artistic Director (The Haystack, 'night, Mother, The Fever Syndrome, Folk) reunites with Munro, having previously directed her plays Iron (Royal Court) and Little Eagles (Hampstead).

Mary is a T.S. Eliot Foundation commission.
