Ralph Fiennes and Indira Varma for MACBETH. (Oliver Rosser)

by William Shakespeare   
Directed by Simon Godwin
Featuring Ralph Fiennes & Indira Varma 

Blood will have blood. Unbridled ambition, supernatural forces, and murderous desires reign supreme in Shakespeare’s most poetic examination of evil. When three witches tell Macbeth that he will become King of Scotland, he plots with his wife to attain the title through an assassination; a bloody act that gives him his crown and sends him careening down the path of his own undoing. Artistic Director Simon Godwin directs Tony and BAFTA Award-winner Ralph Fiennes (The English Patient) and Olivier Award-winner Indira Varma (Game of Thrones) in this thrilling account of how our minds deceive us and how a guilty conscience can undo us all. 

Tickets are available for Macbeth with a 23/24 Season Package. Click below to learn more.

Why is the show taking place off-site?

  • This production’s concept includes staging the show in a custom-built theatre space in each of the four cities it will tour (Liverpool, Edinburgh, London, and D.C.). STC’s team will be building the stage, creating a unique lobby experience, enhancing security, and designing immersive installations that bring patrons into the heart of Birnam Wood.

Where will the performances take place?

  • The D.C. run has found its home at 1301 W St. NE. Situated in Brentwood, this impressive sound stage (formerly part of BET Studios) offers more than 40,000 square feet to create the world of the play. More features of the building include:
    • Conveniently located 20 minutes from STC’s Harman Hall
    • Plenty of on-site parking (cost TBD)
    • ADA-approved entrances and facilities
    • 700-seat house offers an intimate experience 

When will single tickets be on sale?
