The 'Scottish Play' is one of Shakespeare's best-known works. Betrayal, jealousy and lust for power all contribute to one of the most powerfully dark plays ever written. The Young Rep brought William Shakespeare's enduring tragedy to the main stage of the Swan Theatre to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Worcester Repertory Company.
The brutal aftermath of civilisation’s collapse propels Macbeth towards an ill-fated destiny as he struggles to survive against dark forces intent on bringing about his downfall. His life is altered in a split second of disturbing prophecy as Lady Macbeth drives him further towards his inescapable end.
Set in a bleak, dystopian world where the fight for survival is a constant one, director Ben Humphrey brought Shakespeare’s psychological masterpiece to life with an award-winning creative team and the incredible company of young actors.
The production was highly critically acclaimed and launched the Young Rep as the "...future of theatre." (Worcester News)
