National Theatre's Macbeth

This event has passed

The National Theatre, creators of War Horse and The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time, bring this epic production to The Lowry Theatre following a sold out run in London.

The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are thrust towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness. This new production propels Shakespeare’s classic tragedy into a post-apocalyptic world of anarchy and uncertainty.
