Macbeth

By William Shakespeare

15 May - 2 Aug 2019

“…clear storytelling, energetic performances, sharp staging, great swordplay and intelligent use of the language.”

Sydney Morning Herald

 

Shakespeare’s most immersive and haunting play tells of the murderous ascent to greatness of a husband and wife who believe they can control time and destiny. A loving couple, suffering the loss of a child, are surrounded by the children of others – of the King, Macduff, Banquo. To what extent is their first crime an act of love in that terrible void, a sacrifice she makes for him and in return, he for her?

 

Sport For Jove’s acclaimed Macbeth is an ecstatic vision of what love and ambition can do to people, of ghosts, shadows and the terrors of the imagination.

 

“…O full of scorpions is my mind dear wife…”
