Macbeth – Northern Stage, Newcastle

September 27, 7:30 pm - October 7, 7:30 pm

Macbeth Northern Stage Newcastle upon Tyne Theatre Shakespeare

A co-production with Northern Stage, ETT (English Touring Theatre), Shakespeare North Playhouse and Théâtres de la Ville de Luxembourg.

A struggling and divided nation, tearing itself apart. So, when the Macbeths see their chance at the crown, why shouldn’t they take it?

But things don’t go according to plan. Dreams quickly turn to nightmares, humanity erodes, nature stirs. As society strives to make sense of the darkness that sits inside it, how long will it take for people to fight back against the endless cycle of violence and corruption?

A visceral and contemporary new production that speaks to a world we find ourselves living in now and asks why has Macbeth haunted our fears and nightmares for centuries? What lesson is this cautionary tale still urgently trying to communicate to us?
