BY WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE DIRECTED BY JOHN BELL
WITH SEAN O'SHEA AND LINDA CROPPER
A metaphysical tale of ambiguity, shape-shifting and things not as they seem, director John Bell strips back Shakespeare's most haunting thriller to its core and asks: from where does the evil within come? Is it the witches? The devil? His own lingering demons? Or is the successful, young Macbeth the devil himself inside?
Driven by an insatiable hunger for power, posterity and certainty, Macbeth and his wife commit a murder and set in motion the inevitable unravelling of their own humanity. With blood on their hands, they face the dire consequences of the natural order disturbed. And the questions demand an answer.
Sean O’Shea and Linda Cropper play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth in this new production of Shakespeare’s masterpiece. A terrifying portrayal of moral collapse, Bell Shakespeare’s Macbeth will take you on an intense and compelling journey.
