Royal Shakespeare Company
By William Shakespeare

“Something wicked this way comes.”

Returning home from battle, the victorious Macbeth meets three witches on the heath. Driven by their disturbing prophecies, he sets out on the path to murder.

This contemporary production of Shakespeare’s darkest psychological thriller marks both Christopher Eccleston’s (Doctor Who) Royal Shakespeare Company debut and the return of Niamh Cusack (Hearbeat) to the Company.

Captured live on stage in Stratford-Upon-Avon and screened at Riverside.
