Macbeth - RSC at the Barbican

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.

Polly Findlay’s contemporary production of Shakespeare’s darkest psychological thriller marks Christopher Eccleston’s RSC debut as Macbeth and the return of Niamh Cusack to the Company as Lady Macbeth.

★★★★ ‘Urgent and wonderfully sinister’ Evening Standard

★★★★ ‘Christopher Eccleston and Niamh Cusack make a gripping central couple’ The Stage
