Go to What's On
The Watermill Theatre


By William Shakespeare

Adapted & Directed by Abigail Pickard Price

Tue 31 Oct 2023 - Sat 04 Nov 2023

Passion and greed collide in a bold and thrilling new interpretation of Macbeth.

A tempting prophesy and insatiable ambition consume the Macbeths, who stop at nothing in their pursuit of power. As tensions mount, they are plunged into a world of darkness and deceit to secure their dominance and ensure their survival.


Shakespeare’s classic tragedy is given the Watermill Ensemble treatment in this new fast-paced seventy-five minute production, featuring an electrifying rock score performed by an ensemble cast of three actor-musicians. 

Tickets from £10
