National Theatre’s Macbeth
The National Theatre brings Macbeth, an epic and visually daring production of Shakespeare’s most intense tragedy, to the Festival Theatre in October.
About National Theatre’s Macbeth
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are thrust towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.
The National Theatre, creators of War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, bring this epic and visually daring production of Shakespeare’s most intense tragedy on a tour of the UK and Ireland immediately following a sold out run in London.
Directed by National Theatre Artistic Director Rufus Norris (Cabaret, London Road) and designed by Rae Smith (War Horse, This House) this new production propels Shakespeare’s classic title into a post-apocalyptic world of anarchy and uncertainty.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for National Theatre’s Macbeth are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
