Rave Reviews for Sydney Theatre Company's 'Mary Stuart'
Congratulations to Kate Mulvany and Max Lyandvert for their work on STC’s Mary Stuart. Kate’s masterful adaptation based on Friedrich Schiller’s 200 year old play has just opened in Sydney and features Max Lyandvert’s brilliant composition and sound design.
Following an uprising, Mary has fled Scotland only to be imprisoned in England. Elizabeth feels threatened – Mary is younger, more beloved, and with her own claim to the throne. In a world dominated by double-crossing men, these remarkable monarchs scheme and struggle to hold on to power. Do they have more in common than they realise? The question now is whether Elizabeth will release Mary – or execute her.
What critics are saying…
A compelling new adaptation by Kate Mulvany ★★★★½ Sydney Morning Herald
A highly original and quite thrilling adaptation of Friedrich Schiller’s 1800’s play. It reminds us that when we revive a classic we should not only ask how we do justice to it, but what’s in it for us. Kate Mulvany has taken this epic tragedy about the conflict between Elizabeth I and Mary Queen of Scots and turned it on its head. The Australian
Max Lyandvert’s subtle composition for the sound design works very well. The Australian
