In a Scotland-wide tour, the Citizens Theatre, Glasgow, brings The Macbeths: an intimate and stripped down version of Shakespeare’s epic tale of hubris, betrayal and destructive partnership.

At the heart of Shakespeare’s darkest play is a disintegrating marriage. This new adaptation using a radically cut version of the text focuses on the destructive relationship between the ambitious couple.

First performed in 2017, this brutal and intense production by the Citizens Theatre’s Artistic Director Dominic Hill tells the Bard’s famous story in a powerfully concentrated 70 minutes.

Charlene Boyd, whose ‘electric’ performance in the original production earned her a Critics’ Awards for Theatre in Scotland nomination, returns to the cast. She is joined by Lucianne McEvoy in the role of Macbeth.

Run at the Citz in October 2017, with its relentless focus on the marriage at the heart of the story, the play sold out. It's success has been recently underlined with Charlene Boyd - Lady Macbeth - nominated for a Critics Award for Theatre in Scotland, as Best Female Performance

Pitlochry will present two performances at 2pm and 7.30pm, set 'in-the-round' - a new format, with the audience on the mainstage with the performers.

Come along and get up-close-and-personal, in a new and powerful way to intensify one of the most well-known and visceral of Shakespeare's tragedies.
