In the aftermath of battle, flushed with victory, two soldiers have a bizarre encounter. Three unearthly women prophesy for them undreamed-of greatness. But when shortly afterwards the first of their prophecies come true, one of them dares to imagine…

And thus begins the reign of Shakespeare’s most tormented tyrant. Driven to ever increasing horror in his attempts to cover his tracks and second-guess his rivals, Macbeth sinks deeper and deeper into isolation and madness. The original Game of Thrones – and the best. All dark and comfortless, Shakespeare’s restless epic shows a man’s slow immersion in the corruption that comes with power.

Following the great success of former Artistic Director Simon Phillips’ recent Shakespeare productions, Richard III and Hamlet, which garnered Green Room and Helpmann awards, this fearsome reinterpretation of Macbeth completes a trilogy of unforgettable Shakespearean productions for MTC.
