One couple's ruthless quest for power turns nature upside down in Shakespeare’s epic tragedy of Macbeth at the Globe Theatre this summer.


When the universe gives Macbeth a sign that he will become King, he and his wife won't let anyone stop them. Leaving a trail of destruction in their wake, the bodies pile up as the couple cling to power and control.


Following 2022’s ‘mesmerising’ ★★★★★ (WhatsOnStage) The Merchant of Venice in the Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Director Abigail Graham debuts in the Globe Theatre.


‘Stars, hide your fires. Let not light see my black and deep desires’

    Awful!! Poor costumes - no idea who is who, guessing all night! Odd people on stage as if walked off the street? Who is the pregnant lady? Who is the odd health and safty chap? Why dressed as police men! Disaster! Even more confusing to fathom! When meant as an aid memoirs to support GCSE students all came away even more confused! Poor advertisement for standing, made it believe you were buying an actual standing spot! Not a free for all. Mosh pit

    Sadly,this was the most dreadful excuse for Shakespeare's Macbeth . I brought my 15 year olds for the first time since Covid to the Globe and my son said "This is butchery ,it's ruined the play for me. " The gender roles pointlessly being switched,screeching and confusing ,irrelevant scenery additions and sloppy,poor acting in particular for Macbeth and his wife .Sadly a huge waste of money and time and I would like a refund

    So many compelling ideas and interpretation. Loved the sinister humour of the witches. Simply not enough clarity to begin with as to who was who, especially not helped by seemingly indifferent costume. Liked Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, but was especially moved by Malcolm.
