Sleep no more…The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are thrust towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.
Festival Theatre Edinburgh has announced confirmation of casting for the National Theatre’s epic and visually daring production of Shakespeare’s most intense tragedy with a five day programme of performances at The Festival Theatre – 23 – 27 October 2018
Following its sold-out London run, Scottish actor Michael Nardone (BBC One’s The Night Manager and Rellik, HBO’s Rome) will play the title role in National Theatre Director Rufus Norris’ touring production of Macbeth, with Kirsty Besterman (Genesis Inc. at Hampstead Theatre, They Drink It in The Congo at the Almeida Theatre, and BBC One’s Father Brown) joining the cast as Lady Macbeth.
Macbeth is produced on tour by the NT, creators of War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. Directed by NT Artistic Director Rufus Norris (Cabaret, London Road) and designed by Rae Smith (War Horse, This House) this new production propels Shakespeare’s classic title into a post-apocalyptic world of anarchy and uncertainty.
