    Macbeth Tickets

    Power and madness take hold in Shakespeare’s visceral tragedy. Witness the Macbeths’ chilling downfall at the Globe this summer.

    Power and Madness With Macbeth Tickets

    A ruthless pursuit of power descends into madness as Macbeth returns to London this summer. Watch the seeds of ambition bloom into self-destructive tragedy in Shakespeare’s chilling psychological thriller, playing at the Globe Theatre.

    About Macbeth

    When Macbeth’s ascension is prophesied by three witches, he and his wife embark on a bloody quest to secure the throne. They leave a trail of regicide, murder, manipulation and destruction in their wake, but no matter what, this couple clings to power - even as madness takes hold.

    Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most haunting and psychologically brutal tragedies, and this revival at the Globe Theatre is an epic, blood-pumping production that feels all the more haunting in the open air.

    Characters in Macbeth

    Some of the most iconic moments from the entirety of Shakespeare’s work lie in Macbeth, and its characters have become the blueprint for many later plays, films and books. They include Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, a married couple. Macbeth is Thane of Glamis and a general in King Duncan’s army. Lady Macbeth is his ambitious wife who is not afraid to be ruthless in her pursuit of power.

    Also key to the story are the three Witches, who meet Macbeth at the start of the play and prophesise that he will become king. But every prophecy has a twist, and Macbeth’s interpretation of their words contributes to his dramatic undoing…

    Other characters include King Duncan, Banquo, Macduff and Lady Macduff, and Fleance.

    Shakespeare’s Globe Macbeth Cast and Creatives

    It is no small task to stage one of the world’s most famous plays in a fresh and exciting way, but director Abigail Graham (Sam Wanamaker Playhouse: The Merchant of Venice) rises to the challenge.

    Her production of Macbeth radically casts three male actors in the role of the witches, and condenses the show so that every twist, turn and unnerving beat feels even stronger.

    The cast is equally impressive, with Macbeth played by Max Bennett, Lady Macbeth by Matti Houghton, Macduff by Aaron Anthony, Malcolm by Joseph Payne, Lady Macduff by Eleanor Wyld, and Banquo by Fode Simbo.
