O, full of scorpions is my mind

A spellbinding story of love and murder, the renewing power of nature, and of the internal struggles of a damaged man as he tries to control his destiny. This bracingly fresh production of the Scottish play uses binaural sound technology to  place us inside the minds of the Macbeths, asking are we ever really responsible for our actions?

Shakespeare’s most extraordinary psychological drama is led at the Donmar this winter by David Tennant, who plays the title role for the first time in his illustrious stage career. He is joined by Cush Jumbo (Hamlet, The Good Fight) as Lady Macbeth, directed by Donmar Associate Director Max Webster (Henry V, Life of Pi).


We need to raise a total of £150,000 to help us bring our ambitious plans for MACBETH to life. Thanks to our generous supporters, we have been able to raise 80% of our target. We have launched a MACBETH Production Syndicate to raise the remaining £30,000, and we need your help. Find out more about supporting MACBETH

With special thanks to Charles Holloway, Season Supporter

MACBETH is generously supported by David & Linda Lakhdhir, Mr Rajeev Philip, Clive & Sally Sherling, Stuart & Hilary Williams and an Anonymous supporter
