NTLIVE: Macbeth (Delayed Live)
June 7 @ 19:00pm - 22:00pm£7 - £11
Shakespeare’s most intense and terrifying tragedy, directed by Rufus Norris (The Threepenny Opera, London Road), will see Rory Kinnear (Young Marx, Othello) and Anne-Marie Duff (Oil, Suffragette) return to the National Theatre to play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
Director and designer Rae Smith have created a modern-Gothic look for the play
“The main draw, however, is the lead casting. Rory Kinnear’s Macbeth is not unlike the Creature (ie Frankenstein’s) he portrayed in the TV series Penny Dreadful a couple of years ago: more aware and reflective than usual, but not prepared to let that stop his resolved course of action, once it is resolved.” The Financial Times
“Anne-Marie Duff as Lady Macbeth. From first reading hubby’s letter about the witches’ predictions until her final somnambulistic disintegration, she makes every word vibrate with high-tension significance. “ The Financial Times
The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.
Please note that Macbeth may contain scenes of a violent nature.
This is Delayed Live from the Live Broadcast on May 10th.
