As one of the texts by the immortal classic playwright William Shakespeare, Macbeth, is an integral part of the global theatre canon. The shortest yet the most concentrated Shakespeare tragedy offers a minuscule theatrical vision of the evil lurking within a respected hero who becomes a detested tyrant.
A supposedly cursed play about just how thin can be the line separating a hero from a murderer and good deeds from evil ones. One of the most famous tragedies is about the tempting but sinister temptation to gain absolute power, making one lose everything. What is it like to betray the trust of all of those around us, even ourselves? Simple solutions do not exist. No one can wash the blood off their hands. The man who has everything and wants even more. Evil is born here and now. Doesn't that remind you of anything? The Scottish tragedy returns to the stage of the SND Drama Theatre for the third time. This time in a unique and distinctive interpretation of Martin Čičvák, who is an outstanding representative of one generation of theatre directors. Paranoia. Metal. An army of bloodthirsty hyenas.
Running time: 2 hrs 45 mins with one interval
Première November 12, 2022
