Following their acclaimed collaboration on Medea at the National Theatre, Carrie Cracknell and Lucy Guerin have together created a new version of Shakespeare’s supernatural tragedy, Macbeth, premiering at The Young Vic, London.
When the prophecy of three witches proclaims that Macbeth is destined to become the King of Scotland, he and Lady Macbeth embark upon a murderous journey of power, treachery, paranoia, betrayal and suicide.
Beginning with Shakespeare’s text, the powerful and unsettling choreography weaves its way throughout the story, culminating in an unforgettable final act where words falter and finally give way.
A Young Vic, Birmingham Repertory Theatre and HOME co-production, in association with Lucy Guerin Inc.
Premiered at The Young Vic, London.
