Kenneth Branagh and Alex Kingston MACBETH Directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh

Premiering at MIF13, Kenneth Branagh and Rob Ashford's Macbeth ran from 5 - 20 July 2013. It subsuquently toured to the Park Avenue Armory in New York, running from 31 May - 22 June 2014.

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.
