Time Out says

Isabelle Huppert stars as Mary Queen of Scots in Robert Wilson’s monologue

French acting legend Isabelle Huppert was last supposed to grace the Barbican’s stage in 2020, in Ivo van Hove’s production of ‘The Glass Menagerie’. The London transfer was sadly nixed by the pandemic and seems unlikely to ever happen now. But here’s some decent – if brief – compensation as Huppert teams up with US avant-garde theatre legend Robert Wilson to perform monologue ‘Mary Said What What Said’, a solo performance designed and directed by Wilson with its text drawn from Mary Queen of Scots’s letters that she wrote while imprisoned and awaiting her execution.

Performed in French with English surtitles.
