The Connaught Studio is showing Macbeth recorded live at the Globe at 7.30 pm tomorrow night (Tuesday September 16th).
Eve Best makes “a cracking directorial debut” (Daily Telegraph), with her envisioning of the Scottish Play.
When three witches tell Macbeth (Joseph Milson) that he is destined to occupy the throne of Scotland, he and his wife (double Olivier Award-winner, Samantha Spiro) choose to become the instruments of their fate and to kill the first man standing in their path, the virtuous King Duncan (Gawn Grainger). But to maintain his position, Macbeth must keep on killing – first Banquo, played by Lord of the Rings star Billy Boyd, his old comrade-in-arms; then, as the atmosphere of guilt and paranoia thickens, anyone who seems to threaten his tyrant’s crown.
From its mesmerising first moments to the last fulfilment of the witches’ prophecy, Shakespeare’s gripping account of the profoundest engagement with the forces of evil enthrals the imagination. Macbeth also stars Harry Hepple as Lennox and Finty Williams as Lady Macduff.
The Connaught Studio is at 3 Union Street, Worthing.
