Macbeth 2009 - 2011

Tour Information

Macbeth is the great tragedy of the imagination. A man and a woman, bound together in ambition, are destroyed in a welter of blood. Cheek by Jowl’s ensemble conjures Shakespeare’s world of witchcraft, ghosts and apparitions in an hallucinatory experience of sound and shadow.


Who would have thought the old man to have had so much blood in him?
