A brief plot synopsis...
Emerging victorious and decorated in war Macbeth receives a thrilling pronouncement from three witches who prophesy he will one day be King of Scotland. Overcome by ambition and driven on by his powerful wife Macbeth murders the king and sets in motion a terrible sequence of events from which there is no turning back.
Founded in 2004, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are the modern incarnation of Shakespeare’s original company of the same name. Performing with an all male cast, they present authentic, excellent and magical productions of Shakespeare’s finest plays bringing to vivid and accessible life the greatest works of drama, as they would first have been performed. Peter Stickney took over the company as Artistic Director and Chief Executive in 2016.
