NDT Associate The Faction transfer Mary Stuart to the National Theatre of Qatar

Sunday, 2 September, 2012

After a sell out run in early January 2012 at New Diorama Theatre, one of three shows in their first Rep Season, The Faction’s mesmerizing Mary Stuart transferred to Qatar’s recently re-furbished National Theatre of Qatar in Doha, before returning to New Diorama Theatre for a second run in September 2012. 

Invited by the Qatar Embassy in London, the Faction performed their highly successful production of Schiller’s Mary Stuart, a new, premiere translation by Mark Leipacher and Danny Millar, at the historic venue. This was a first international outing as part of a national tour, for this exciting emerging company.

The Faction is an ensemble, interpreting classical texts with a contemporary aesthetic to engage and excite local, national and international audiences, recently receiving critical acclaim across the country.

2012 has been a year of ‘firsts’ for this remarkable ensemble company and we are delighted to host their current second Rep Season here at New Diorama Theatre.

“What impresses most is the organic inspiration of the ensemble work.” ★ ★ ★ ★ The Independent


“One of the many virtues of this exciting production is that it gives us an intimate, stripped-down and mercifully un-rhetorical version of Schiller's great 1800 romantic tragedy.”  ★ ★ ★ ★ The Guardian
