Macbeth by William Shakespeare


William Shakespeare
Liverpool Everyman Playhouse
Directed by Gemma Bodinetz

Macbeth’s desire to gain power and keep it at all costs threatens to destroy a nation, replacing dignity and the rules of law with guilt and paranoia.

One of the country's foremost actors, David Morrissey, returns to the Everyman, where he first acted as a Youth Theatre member.  He plays the murderous king opposite Julia Ford as Lady Macbeth, in one of Shakespeare's most visceral and menacing plays.

Production duration: 2 hrs 30 min
