Macbeth is dead, long live the King.

Under cover of night, an English army has swept through the Scottish landscape, killed the tyrant and taken the seat of power.

Attempting to restore peace and put in place a new ruler, Siward, the commanding officer, is beset by a brutal guerrilla uprising and simmering discontent amongst his own inexperienced troops. Struggling to grasp the alien customs and politics of this harsh country, he finds himself drawn towards Macbeth’s powerful widow in search of someone to share his burden of responsibility. Increasingly isolated from his own men and Scottish allies alike, his efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control.

The compelling Scottish actress Siobhan Redmond brings Lady Macbeth electrifyingly to life in Dunsinane with the acclaimed Darrell D’Silva as the increasingly unsettled English commander.

David Greig’s exhilarating play is a vision of one man’s attempt to restore peace in a country ravaged by war.

National Theatre of Scotland
The National Theatre of Scotland has been entertaining audiences at home and beyond since February 2006. As Scotland’s national theatre, it works collaboratively with the best companies and individuals to produce and tour world class theatre. Its ambitions are simple: to create work that excites and challenges audiences and which makes Scotland proud. With no building of its own, the company’s theatre takes place in the great buildings of Scotland, but also in site specific locations, airports and tower blocks, community halls and drill halls, ferries and forests. The company has performed to over one million people across four continents. All of Scotland is its stage, and from Scotland it performs to the world.

Royal Shakespeare Company
Since it opened its doors in 1961, the Royal Shakespeare Company has been inviting the most talented and influential theatre makers to do their best work. During those five decades, it has produced plays by Shakespeare and his contemporaries alongside classics and new plays, with the classical and the contemporary enriching each other every step of the way. It welcomes more than a million visitors to its Stratford-upon-Avon theatres each year and it tours to London, Newcastle upon Tyne, around the UK and across the world.
