Presented by the Pop-up Globe Southampton’s Company.
“Blood will have blood…”
A haunting and timeless tragedy that explores the darkest corners of the human mind set in a world where the supernatural is real and the quickest way to the top is by murder. Macbeth, presented by Pop-up Globe’s mixed Southampton’s Company sees darkness, chaos and conflict unfold.
Honoured for his heroic exploits defending Scotland from invasion and rebellion, Macbeth’s world is overturned when three witches prophesy that, amongst his future fortunes, he will one day become king.
Uncertain if they are being manipulated by supernatural forces or just fulfilling their natural destiny, Macbeth and his ambitious wife choose action over indecision – but murder is just the beginning of their descent into darkness, and holding onto power could end up costing them their sanity and their souls …
Shakespeare’s sublime exploration of ambition and the darkest depths of the human psyche, Macbeth is his most haunting and timeless tragedy.
