As developed by Dillane and director Travis Preston Macbeth becomes not only a harrowing portrait of a mind unravelling in the presence of the horrors it has engendered, but also a poetic and personal meditation upon the corrupting influence of power.

Acknowledged as one of the finest actors of his generation, Stephen Dillane’s credits include Dancing at Lughnasa, Hamlet (directed by Peter Hall), Endgame and The Real Thing (Donmar) and The Coast of Utopia at the National Theatre. His films range from Welcome To Sarajevo to King Arthur and The Hours.

Accompanying Dillane’s virtuoso performance are three live musicians, including experimental jazz composer Vinny Golia whose original score underpins the play’s nightmarish dreamscape.
