“By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”

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.
