Presented by State Theatre Company
By William Shakespeare
Macbeth. The perfect embodiment of ego and ambition? Or a grief stricken soldier trying to fill a hole in his heart that has no end? Lady Macbeth. The mistress of manipulation and power behind the throne? Or a shattered not-quite mother, fractured from the world around her? This extraordinary tale charts the brutal rise and fall of one of the theatre’s most complex couples as we follow them on their increasingly merciless path towards the crown.
Shakespeare’s grand tragedy will be jump-started by the State Theatre Company Ensemble, with Nathan O’Keefe (Things I Know To Be True, Betrayal) and Anna Steen (The Importance of Being Earnest, The 39 Steps) as the conjoined, madly beating hearts around which a vengeance-soaked world spins.
It will be breathless.
It will be bloody.
It will be bold.
Run time: 1hr 50 minutes (no interval)
Macbeth contains: Theatrical Haze and Smoke Effects, Mature themes, Strong violence, Strobe Lighting, (Copious amounts of) fake blood
