Following its sold-out London run, the National Theatre will bring Shakespeare’s most intense tragedy, Macbeth to the Theatre Royal Glasgow between 19th & 23rd February 2019!
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
This epic and visually daring production will embark on an 18-venue tour of the UK and Ireland from September 2018 - March 2019, with a week at Theatre Royal, Glasgow from Tuesday 19 February.
Sleep no more…The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are thrust towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.
Directed by NT Artistic Director Rufus Norris (Cabaret, London Road) and designed by Rae Smith (War Horse, This House) this new production propels Shakespeare’s classic title into a post-apocalyptic world of anarchy and uncertainty.
Rufus Norris said, “I’m delighted that Macbeth will be touring the UK and Ireland following its run in the Olivier Theatre earlier in the year. We’re really excited by what is coming out of the rehearsal room and it’s particularly rewarding to be able to take this brilliant play to so many towns and cities. We fully intend to give audiences a fresh and dynamic view of this timeless classic.”
Set design by Rae Smith, associate set design by Aaron Marsden, costume design by Moritz Junge, lighting design by James Farncombe, movement direction by Imogen Knight, music by Orlando Gough, sound design by Paul Arditti and fight direction by Kev McCurdy and Jeremy Barlow. The Associate Director is Liz Stevenson.
Casting to be announced.
Macbeth is produced on tour by the NT, creators of War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time.
Macbeth on Tour in partnership with Lloyds Bank Private Banking. Supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England’s cross-border touring programme and by The Royal National Theatre Foundation.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Macbeth are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
