William Shakespeare's

Macbeth

“O full of scorpions is my

mind dear wife...”

Damien Ryan directs a brand new production of Macbeth for Sport for Jove in 2022 offering new insights into this extraordinary play and a thrillingly good cast – a deeply atmospheric, faithful and exciting introduction to the play for young audiences.

 

Shakespeare’s most immersive and haunting play tells of the murderous ascent to ‘greatness’ of a husband and wife who believe they can control time and destiny. A loving couple, suffering the loss of a child, are surrounded by the children of others – of the King, Macduff, Banquo. To what extent is their first criminal act an act of love in that terrible void, a sacrifice she makes for him and in return, he for her?

 

Sport for Jove’s acclaimed Macbeth is an ecstatic vision of what love and ambition can do to people, of ghosts, shadows, and the terrors of the imagination.

Macbeth is a must-see for students of the play, or young people experiencing Shakespeare for the first time.

"Ryan’s Macbeth displays
a masterful progression of character, a meditation on the nature of evil that is all the more profound – and fearful – for its perspective: evil from the inside. A nuanced, emotionally sensitive Macbeth.”
