Macbeth

National Theatre, Olivier

Open Run

Anne-Marie Duff and Rory Kinnear lead Shakespeare's murderous tragedy when it returns to the National in 2018, directed by Rufus Norris. Marking Kinnear's return to the NT since his star turn in 2016's Threepenny Opera, he will play the tortured monarch as he falls under the scheming machinations of his cruel wife, and murders his way to the crown. But at what price, his sanity? Kinnear is joined by Anne-Marie Duff, marking her return to the NT since her acclaimed role in George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan.

Remember the largest bankruptcy filing in US history? The one that some say instigated the global financial crisis of the late-2000's? That was the fall of the once mighty Lehman Brothers' financial conglomerate, and on the National Theatre Lyttleton stage this season, The Lehman Trilogy will tell their story spanning 163 years. Shown in three parts over an evening, multi-award-winning director Sam Mendes leads an illustrious cast of Simon Russell Beale, Adam Godley and Ben Miles portraying the family Lehman over three generations.

South Bank, London SE1 9PX

One of the South Bank's most memorable buildings, The National Theatre is London's cultural hub for the theatrical arts, housing three auditoriums that continually strive to present the best in innovation and talent alongside showcasing classic and new works. Finished in 1977, the brutalist concrete building's architecture has many naysayers but twice as many admirers, and has been Grade II listed since 1994. Many incredible works have benefited from their National Theatre patronage, including the recent successes of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time, One Man Two Guvnors and the groundbreaking War Horse.
