An immortal tale of man’s greed and the corruptive toxicity of power, Macbeth tells the tragic story of a general who, when told by three witches he is fated to become king, will do anything to make it come true. Christopher Eccleston (Doctor Who) makes his debut with the Royal Shakespeare Company and Niamh Cusack makes a triumphant return in this contemporary production of Macbeth. A bold and visionary modern reimagining of the play, the RSC transforms the classic masterpiece into a dark psychological thriller—complete with blackouts, loud noises and strobe effects.
