26th February - 7th March 2020

“When shall we three meet again in thunder, lightning, or in rain?”

Victorious from a bloody battle the triumphant Macbeth is greeted by the three weird sisters. Inspired and driven by their incredible prophecies he sets out on the path to conquer all. A story of ambition, leadership and belief.


Shakespeare’s supernatural and bloody Macbeth bursts on to the stage in this epic new ensemble production and features as the first production in our third year-long residency at Greenwich Theatre.

Macbeth is produced in association with The Greenwich Theatre and is part of our Greenwich Made / Greenwich Played residency.
