An ETT, Northern Stage, Shakespeare North Playhouse & Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg production.


By William Shakespeare


A visceral and contemporary new production by English Touring Theatre and Directed by Richard Twyman based on the classic play by William Shakespeare.

A struggling and divided nation is tearing itself apart. So, when the Macbeths see their chance at the crown, why shouldn't they take it?

But things don’t go according to plan. Dreams quickly turn to nightmares, humanity erodes, nature stirs.

As society strives to make sense of the darkness that sits inside it, how long will it take for people to fight back against the endless cycle of violence and corruption?

The production speaks to a world we find ourselves living in now, and asks why has Macbeth haunted our fears and nightmares for centuries. What lesson is this cautionary tale still urgently trying to communicate to us?
