A Radical Classic™ from the Volcano back-catalogue, remade for 2016.
Originally directed by Nigel Charnock for Volcano in 1999, this furious two-hander takes the bloodiest and most intense of Shakespeare’s plays and strips it bare of its regal cushioning, evoking the tawdry domestic world of contemporary serial killers in an erotic and violent theatrical assault on the senses. It is lyrical, apocalyptic, extreme and dangerous.
Macbeth - Director’s Cut has toured to Sri Lanka, Switzerland, Canada, Greece, Nitra Festival in Slovakia, New European Festival Russia, Almagro Festival in Spain, Dublin Fringe and the South Bank Centre.
Volcano has been making extraordinary theatre from its base in Swansea for nearly thirty years, and remains Wales’s most consistently inventive performance company. The new Macbeth – Director’s cut is directed by company founder and original cast member Paul Davies, and features a new generation of performers.
