The Macbeths want what they believe to be theirs, the crown.
How long will it take a struggling and divided society to fight back against the ever-turning wheel of violence and power?
Through the couple’s landscape of grief and uncertainty, a complex portrait of a fragile mind emerges. A tense psychological exploration of masculinity, fragility, shame, and delusion.
Meanwhile nature is transforming, dreams are becoming nightmares, our world is rejecting humanity.
English Touring Theatre's Macbeth is a visceral, claustrophobic, and intoxicating show, which speaks to a world we find ourselves living in now, as we watch those who hold the highest responsibilities in our society brazenly use deceit and misinformation in their quest for power.
