About: Macbeth - Cheek by Jowl

Macbeth is a 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 latest work conjures a world of witchcraft, ghosts and apparitions in an hallucinatory experience of sound and shadow.

Declan Donnellan and Nick Ormerod’s production strips the play back to its devastating heart, exposing Shakespeare’s shocking insight into the cost of power.
