A psychological thriller examining the dangers of political ambition, Macbeth (2020) was a full-scale, fast-paced 90 minute performance in the Globe Theatre designed to introduce students and families to Shakespeare.
A stream of the production was made available for a limited time on YouTube, following the closure of our theatre due to COVID-19. The stream was viewed over 471,500 times during a time when many students were learning from home.
This production of Macbeth took place in the Globe Theatre in 2020 as part of our Playing Shakespeare with Deutsche Bank project.
