Following it's premiere at MIF13, Manchester International Festival is taking Macbeth to New York.

Kenneth Branagh’s return to Shakespeare after more than a decade, featuring Alex Kingston as Lady Macbeth, was a knock-out. His interpretation of Macbeth as a good man declining into desolation and despair was exhilarating. Audiences sat inches from the action as sparks actually flew in the heat of battle.

Blood, mud, fire and rain filled the space, an intimate deconsecrated church – St Peter’s in Ancoats. Never before used as a theatre, the space itself also took a starring role.

Commissioned by Manchester International Festival and Park Avenue Armory.

'Fast, furious and unstoppable, time keeps rushing forward in this Macbeth, knocking the breath out of everyone, audience included.
