FAIR IS FOUL, AND FOUL IS FAIR
Can such things be
And overcome us like a summer’s cloud,
Without our special wonder?
From its mesmerising first moments to the last fulfilment of the witches' prophecy, Shakespeare’s gripping account of the profoundest engagement with the forces of evil enthrals the imagination.
On a barren heath, three sisters tell the great and bloodied Macbeth that he is fated to be King of Scotland. And so begins a terrifying series of events that lead to the murder of Kings, friends, mothers and their children. Macbeth and his Lady fall prey to a soul-corroding guilt as they desperately try and cling to the defiled crown.
The title role is Shakespeare’s most brutal and poetic creation and the play his most unsettling engagement with the supra-natural and the nature of evil. Enter the unique intensity of the Globe as this cycle of wondrous horrors captures our imagination once again...
Absorbing and powerful...This is the Globe as its best
