In the aftermath of a bloody battle, amongst the desecrated ruins of war, Macbeth and Banquo meet a group of unearthly witches who predict a tale of unimaginable greatness for them. When the prophesy starts to come true, Macbeth dares to imagine… and thus begins the reign of Shakespeare’s most infamous tyrant.

Consumed by ambition and drunk with power, Macbeth embarks on a ruthless campaign to murder his king and take the throne for himself. But, in his attempt to cover his tracks and second-guess his rivals, Macbeth sinks deeper and deeper into horror and madness.

Following acclaimed productions of Richard III and Hamlet, stage master Simon Phillips returns to direct this fearsome production of Macbeth, starring international screen sensation Jai Courtney (Suicide Squad, Terminator Genisys, The Water Diviner), who returns to Australia exclusively for MTC to take on one of the greatest stage roles in the theatrical canon with Geraldine Hakewill (STC’s Disgraced) as Lady Macbeth.
