A prophecy has been told, Lord Macbeth will be king, but this side of the story is yet to be seen. Visionary playwright Zinnie Harris reimagines Shakespeare’s Scottish Play from Lady Macbeth’s perspective in an exhilarating epic of ambition, manipulation, and the intoxicating need to challenge the roles others prescribe for you.
Bojana Novakovic (Love Me) and Johnny Carr (Five Bedrooms) star in a visceral and haunting epic of the 11th century on stage. Lady Macbeth has a vision to unleash the forces of change and renewal—and to seize control of the kingdom.
Malthouse Theatre Artistic Director Matthew Lutton crafts a grand spectacle, igniting a historic battle of power in a world rife with superstition and the supernatural.
Finally, Lady Macbeth takes her rightful place. The path to freedom is sometimes stained with blood.
