The Royal Shakespeare Company has announced a number of productions set to transfer to London from Straford-upon-Avon later this year, including Macbeth starring Christopher Eccleston. Set to open at the RSC next week, Polly Findlay’s production of Macbeth stars Eccleston, Nimah Cusack as Lady Macbeth and Edward Bennett as Macduff, with all three returning to the contemporary production when it runs at the Barbican Theatre in October.
Macbeth - RSC at the Barbican Tickets
Returning home from battle, the victorious Macbeth meets three witches on the heath. Driven by their disturbing prophecies, he sets out on the path to murder.
Our contemporary production of Shakespeare’s darkest psychological thriller marks both Christopher Eccleston’s RSC debut and the return of Niamh Cusack to the company.
Macbeth will be broadcast live to cinemas on 11 April 2018 and will transfer to the Barbican as part of our London Season from October 2018 – January 2019.
