Directed by the Northern Broadsides' artistic director Barrie Rutter, winner of the Creative Britons 2000 award, Macbeth will be performed by a full cast of 15 in the company's characteristically fast-paced and robust performance style. The production is designed by Jessica Worrall.
Over the past decade, Northern Broadsides has built a reputation for challenging the dominant theatrical aesthetic of 'received pronunciation' by using Northern actors who speak the classics in their natural voices. The award-winning company has performed across the UK as well as in Europe, the United States, Brazil and India.
Following Halifax, Macbeth will visit Wellingborough, Skipton, Scarborough, Leeds, Salford, Bury St Edmunds, Liverpool, Bradford and Stoke.
