Macbeth archiveThe Scottish Play - theatrical types consider saying its name to be unlucky! Thrust into power by his overwhelming desires and an over ambitious wife, Macbeth finds his only security is to murder and murder again. From "When shall we three meet again" to "is this a dagger I see before me" a powerful Shakespearean drama. Macbeth is the great tragedy of the imagination. A man and a woman, bound together in ambition are destroyed in a welter of blood. Cheek by Jowl’s latest work conjures a world of witchcraft, ghosts and apparitions in an hallucinatory experience of sound and shadow. Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod’s production strips the play back to its devastating heart, exposing Shakespeare’s shocking insight into the cost of power. Running time: 120mins with no interval
