Shakespeare’s most haunting thriller follows the story of Macbeth, a Scottish general, famed for his exploits on the battlefield.

Duration: 2 hours 20 minutes (including 20 minute interval)
Recommended age: 14+

Following a bloody battle, Macbeth and his comrade Banquo are met by three Weird Sisters who prophesy Macbeth will one day be king.

Unable to shake the thought, Macbeth tells his wife, Lady Macbeth. Driven by an insatiable hunger for power, posterity and certainty, they commit a murder and set in motion the inevitable unravelling of their sanity. With blood on their hands, they face the dire consequences of their despicable actions.

A terrifying portrayal of moral collapse, Peter Evans’ Macbeth, with Logie award-winning Hazem Shammas (The Twelve, Safe Harbour) as Macbeth and Jessica Tovey (The Miser, The Merchant of Venice) as Lady Macbeth, will take you on an intense and compelling journey into the dark heart of humanity.
