By William Shakespeare

Passion, ambition and desire ignite in this thrilling tragedy.

The Watermill Ensemble return following the success of Twelfth Night at Wilton’s in 2018.

Blazing with tension, energy and passion, experience a powerful new interpretation of Macbeth, the Watermill Ensemble’s boldest production to date. Fuelled by greed, ambition and desire, the Macbeths’ desperation to survive is reflected in the fierce reverberations of Johnny Cash,The xx and The Rolling Stones.

The Watermill Ensemble was formed in 2017 and has developed a unique approach to Shakespeare, touring to thousands of people in the UK and internationally. 

Macbeth is performed in repertory with Watermill Theatre's A Midsummer Night's Dream (29th January 2020 – 15th February 2020).
