“A post-apocalyptic Macbeth that goes full-metal Mad Max.” – Variety
Shakespeare’s most intense and terrifying tragedy explores the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Macbeth is set in the ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war, in a ravaged world where everyone is ruthlessly fighting to survive. Here we meet the Macbeths, a couple propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness. Directed by the National Theatre’s Artistic Director Rufus Norris (The Threepenny Opera, London Road), this stylish, brutal and visually stunning production features theatre legends Rory Kinnear (Othello) and Anne-Marie Duff (Suffragette) as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. (Running time: 160 mins, which includes intermission / Not Rated, contains violence)
