‘Stars, hide your fires; Let not light see my black and deep desires.’
In times of uncertainty, power is within reach for those with the strength and courage to seize it. A ruthless, violent struggle for power leads to a devastating coup. Fuelled by greed, ambition and desire, the Macbeths will stop at nothing to survive.
Blazing with tension, energy and passion in their boldest production to date, The Watermill Ensemble return with Macbeth.
Inspired by the fierce sounds of Johnny Cash, The xx and The Rolling Stones, The Watermill’s resident Shakespeare company fuse electrifying actor-musicianship with Shakespeare’s thrilling tragedy.
