Macbeth speaks to a world we find ourselves living in now; a world in which politicians lie to our faces but no one can plaster over the truth that the planet is threatening to turn on us.
I pull in resolution and begin
To doubt th’equivocation of the fiend
That lies like truth.
Exposing the fragility of the human notions of language and destiny, Macbeth conjures something bloody and primal. Battling elemental forces and their own blind ambition, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth are at odds with the natural world, haunted by three unearthly witches and inspired to commit terrible, unnatural acts. Their quest for power for power’s sake leads their bodies and minds to turn against them.
We are delighted that Adele Thomas’s production of Macbeth is the first
in our inaugural Factory Company season, followed by Mike Tweddle’s
direction of A View From the Bridge. For this groundbreaking season of
dynamic work, Tobacco Factory Theatres will become home to its own
ensemble of incredible actors. The season will also incorporate a series
