Multi award-winning actor Alan Cumming returns to Glasgow for a virtuoso performance in Shakespeare’s chilling tale of desire, ambition, and the supernatural.

This radical re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Scottish play is set in a psychiatric unit, focusing on a solitary patient who is channeling the story of Macbeth.

CCTV cameras capture the patient’s every move as he is inhabited in turn by each of the characters and the clinical tiled walls of the unit come to life in a visually stunning multi-media theatrical experience, where nothing is as it seems.

Cast includes Alan Cumming, Myra McFadyen and Ali Craig.

An age guide of 14+ is suggested. Please note there is brief nudity in the production.

John Tiffany and Alan Cumming (who made his stage debut as Malcolm in Macbeth in 1985) originally worked together on the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of Euripides’ The Bacchae which took the Edinburgh International Festival by storm in 2007 and subsequently toured in 2008 to Aberdeen, Inverness and the Lincoln Center Festival in New York. Andy Goldberg runs the Shakespeare Gym in New York City and was staff director on the National Theatre of Scotland’s production of Black Watch in New York, when he and John Tiffany first started collaborating creatively.
