The play is set in the antechambers and corridors of a modern day Scottish Parliament. It’s populated by parliamentarians, pundits, journalists and outside the building, a volatile public; all the ingredients of modern politics.

Perhaps the group of pollsters who offer Macbeth some insights are a little stranger than usual.

In this production, true to the original text, we have one of Shakespeare’s most political of plays, reimagined as a fast-paced thriller where some knowledge about the future can lead to tragedy.
