Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Macbeth

William Shakespeare
Liverpool Everyman Playhouse
Directed by Gemma Bodinetz

"All hail Macbeth, that shalt be king hereafter.”

Counted among his greatest tragedies, Shakespeare’s unsettling combination of warring soldiers and ‘weird sisters’ is brought to life in this post-apocalyptic reimagining of the Scottish play. 

This production, captured by Digital Theatre live at the Liverpool Everyman, was directed by Artistic Director Gemma Bodinetz and was the valedictory performance at the original Everyman Theatre. It starred Liverpool Everyman Youth Theatre alumnus David Morrissey in the title role opposite Julia Ford as Lady Macbeth.

Production duration: 2 hrs 30 min
