Shakespeare's Globe

Macbeth [2016]

Directed by: Iqbal Khan

'Can such things be and overcome us like a summer’s cloud, without our special wonder?'

On a barren heath, three sisters tell the great and bloodied Macbeth that he is fated to be King of Scotland. And so begins a terrifying series of events that lead to the murder of Kings, friends, mothers and their children. Macbeth and his Lady fall prey to a soul-corroding guilt as they desperately try and cling to the defiled crown.

The title role is Shakespeare’s most brutal and poetic creation and the play his most unsettling engagement with the supra-natural and the nature of evil. Enter the unique intensity of the Globe as this cycle of wondrous horrors captures our imagination once again...

Jermaine Dominique and Nadia Albina featured as part of the Adopt an Actor interview series for this production.
