Catch the next screening in National Theatre Live’s 2018 season at Cinema Nouveau with a modern day take on Shakespeare’s tragedy of moral decline, Macbeth. In the ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war, ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.
Intense and terrifying, this new production was filmed live at the National Theatre in London, directed by the NT’s artistic director Rufus Norris. Double Olivier award-winner Rory Kinnear plays Macbeth (Othello, Skyfall), and Olivier and BAFTA nominee Anne-Marie Duff plays Lady Macbeth (Suffragette, Shameless).
Please note this production contains scenes of a violent nature.
