Jamie Lloyd will direct Shakespeare’s bloody tragedy.
Jamie Lloyd said: “I am thrilled to announce the first production for Trafalgar Transformed – a season of politically-charged power plays on the doorstep of Whitehall, accompanied by a festival of platform events, discussions and readings.
“We hope to welcome new and diverse audiences to the West End and I am very excited to engage with schools and other groups via a series of bespoke workshops and master classes.”
Ambassador Theatre Group (ATG) CEO and creative director Howard Panter added: “As the first production in Jamie Lloyd’s season of work for Trafalgar Transformed, we are thrilled that this bold production of the Scottish play will blast the roof off Trafalgar Studios, bringing an electric energy to this theatre.
“It’s a great pleasure to be starting on this exciting journey with Jamie Lloyd, a truly talented director.”
The production is set in a dystopian Scotland brutalised by war, as Macbeth starts his struggle for power.
Performances will be on Monday to Saturday at 7.30pm, and Thursday and Saturday at 2.30pm.
Tickets are priced from £10 to £54.50, with all tickets £15 on Mondays – half of which are being made available to schools and first-time theatregoers and the other half released monthly on the first of each month.
