Deep in the bloody fields of ancient Scotland, the mists clear after a recent battle. Macbeth, a warrior, and his friend Banquo witness three witches prophesying their future: they tell Macbeth that he will be king.
Knowing that King Duncan is due to feast at their home that very night, Macbeth and his wife decide to take the prophecy into their own hands...
Shakespeare's Macbeth is a moral tale of the choices we make and the consequences we have to live with.
With this production, Titian Rep are taking the play back to its blood-soaked muddy roots. When they arrive at The Dell, they will be transferring from a run at The Camden People's Theatre in London.
'The production, which is bare, is excellent, engaging and a genuinely original adaptation of a timeless and well-worn tale.'
About the Titian Repertory Theatre Company
Titian Rep was established in 2011 when the founders felt that the old-style rep was all but extinct and they wanted to create a company, working collaboratively, bringing together like-minded people to produce old-fashioned repertory theatre for a new age.
The company's production of The Winter's Tale over Christmas 2011 was nominated for an Off West End Award for Direction.
To celebrate Shakespeare's 400th year, Amber Elliott collaborated on The Sonnet's Project in summer 2012. This production tells the story of a love-triangle set to Shakespeare's sonnets and was filmed in an Elizabethan box-maze near Chichester.
Titian Rep are now back to their roots in theatre - they're enjoying an exciting year producing their version of Macbeth, with new talents joining the old faces for this latest adventure.
