William Shakespeare's Macbeth

Internationally award-winning Devon (regional UK) theatre company brings Shakespeare’s classic Macbeth to life in the ambitious new production

“Blood will have blood” Macbeth, Act 3 scene 4

Shakespeare’s classic drama of ambition, power and fate, first thought to be performed in 1606, is now brought to life in a dramatic new adaptation performing the original text, set in a post-World War 3, near-future wasteland. Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s best known dramas, alongside King Lear, Orthello, Hamlet, and Romeo & Juliet. It tells the tale of a Scottish war hero, who, tempted by ambition and power, and supernatural whisperings, begins a series of murders, to take and hold the throne. Returning home from war, Macbeth encounters three mysterious women, whose prophecy of kingship, sets in motion his ambition, and ultimately his fall into madness and blood… This production design combines the dark aftermath of a nuclear WW3, the exotic of the supernatural, and dramatic lighting, with immersive soundscapes to create Macbeths world in a new vision of the drama. This performance went on to win the Theatre Partner award in the Long Island Theatre Festival in New York in summer 2019.
