"Director Damian Cruden and his highly talented team and cast have created one of the best versions of Macbeth I have seen." LondonTheatre1.com
"By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes."
Macbeth is bloody, fast-paced, action-packed and psychologically tense. Populated by witches, ghosts and haunting apparitions, it tells the story of over-reaching ambition, a toxic marriage, a kingdom in crisis and a man's encounter with his own darkest self.
Returning victorious from battle in the service of King Duncan of Scotland, Macbeth and Banquo encounter three witches who prophesy that Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and then King of Scotland, while Banquo's descendants will be kings. Consumed by ambition and spurred on by his wife, Macbeth murders Duncan and assumes the crown.
Macbeth then embarks on a murderous path to secure his position and confront his own fears.
