Macbeth (2019)

Directed by Damien Ryan

Written by William Shakespeare

May 15, 2019 to August 2, 2019

"…O full of scorpions is my mind dear wife…”

Sport for Jove’s thrilling 100-minute Macbeth is back after playing to thousands of NSW students over the past 3 years. An 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 critically acclaimed Macbeth is an ecstatic vision of what love and ambition can do to people, of ghosts, shadows and the terrors of the imagination.

A must-see for students of the play or young people being introduced to Shakespeare for the first time.
