About the Show Less...

The Chichester Festival Theatre production of the Scottish play, with Patrick Stewart as the murderously ambitious Macbeth. Read More >

Stewart as Macbeth
Stewart as Macbeth

Rupert Goold and Patrick Stewart team up again after The Tempest earlier this year. This time Stewart is Macbeth, in Shakespeare’s dark and chilling tale of murderous ambition. Goold has created a stark, austere production that places Macbeth in a timeless and nameless country with a law of its own. Disturbing and unsettling, the production centres on the building tensions, paranoia and fear that lead to violence and murder.

This is a transfer from Chichester Festival Theatre.
