A Royal Exchange Theatre Production
The war is over, the victory complete. But for Macbeth, the triumphant forces’ most fearsome warrior, the battle for the throne is only just beginning – and she’ll stop at nothing to take the crown.
Shakespeare’s darkest tragedy is also his most chilling thriller - an action-packed, edge-of-the-seat psychological fable that crackles with life – and the constant threat of death. Following their collaboration on GROUNDED, Lucy Ellinson takes the title role in director Christopher Haydon’s highly-charged production, which explores what happens, when in a split-second you decide to act upon your deepest, darkest ambition.
