Macbeth tickets on sale from 12pm Wed 18 April

We’re very excited to announce tickets our annual open air #BardInTheYardproduction at Royal William Yard go on sale at 12pm tomorrow! (Wednesday 18 April)

Macbeth will be the fourth production in our popular annual #Bard in the Yard programme, running outdoors at the extraordinary Royal William Yard site, adjacent to Plymouth’s historic waterfront. This follows their three hugely successful previous summer productions A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2015), Romeo & Juliet (2016) and Twelfth Night (2017). The production is part of Barbican Theatre’s commitment to creating high quality, accessible work while supporting and developing local talent.

‘Something wicked this way comes…’

Macbeth is a good man, a courageous war hero, respected and loyal. He recognises an opportunity for advancement, he is talented, ambitious….and his wife even more so. But what lengths will he go to secure his power and what will he do with this power?

‘Cruel are the times’

Set in a war torn country Macbeth is a powerful metaphor for our times. This is a breath-taking and bloody story of ambition, treachery, power and guilt.

This is a highly visual, energised and accessible re-telling of the classic Shakespeare play, using the extraordinary skills of local professional actors and emerging artists.
