This summer, a heady brew of greed, murder and dark magic comes to London’s atmospheric Temple Church in a bold new production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
Award-winning Antic Disposition return to Temple Church following sold out, critically acclaimed runs of Romeo and Juliet in 2014, Henry V in 2015 and Richard III in 2017.
Inspired by supernatural promises, a powerful nobleman and his ambitious wife carve a bloody path to the throne of Scotland. But, as the true horror of their crimes begins to be revealed, both the realm and its rulers are plunged into madness.
Located in the secluded heart of London’s legal quarter, Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar in the 12th century and is one of London’s most beautiful and historic buildings. Perhaps best known for its unusual round form and stone effigies of medieval knights, Temple Church became famous more recently as a key location in Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code.
The cast will include Harry Anton (Mary Stuart, Almeida; Hedda Gabler, National Theatre) and Helen Millar (winner of the Alan Bates Award for most outstanding newcomer), taking on the roles of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
Antic Disposition was founded by director Ben Horslen and director/designer John Risebero, and is best known for presenting innovative, visually striking productions of classic plays and stories in spectacular historic buildings.
