'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...
Please note: this production contains scenes of violence, blood & gore, and will use strobe/flashing lights.
The role of Malcolm will be played by Terry Keeley on 26 and 27 August.
The role of The Captain will be played by Danielle Bird on 26 and 27 August.
