Catch Macbeth before it ends

Closes November 29th

This electrifying update of the infamous Scottish Play is set in an unstable Europe during the approach of World War One, with the tormented Macbeth now in the role of the infamous German Kaiser. We see the play with new eyes from behind the enemy's lines, as Kaiser Macbeth's outrageously wicked actions and paranoia lead to the fall of his empire. Commemorating the centenary of the start of WW1, this new adaption of arguably Shakespeare's darkest plays brings new understanding and poignancy to both. Part of the 2014 NYT Rep season with Selfie and Private Peaceful. Read more Buy Tickets.
