"False face must hide what the false heart doth know"


An insatiable lust for power brings a nation to its knees.

The National Youth Theatre present a brand new gender fluid adaptation of Shakespeare’s sinister tale of greed, betrayal and revenge by NYT Alumna Moira Buffini (, Handbagged).

Performed by the 2018 NYT REP Company, Natasha Nixon’s electric production explores the gender politics and human struggle which spark triumphant Macbeth’s infamous and catastrophic downfall.
