By William Shakespeare


Enjoy Manchester International Festival’s electrifying production of Macbeth, with Kenneth Branagh (My Week With Marilyn, Hamlet) in his first Shakespeare performance in over a decade as Macbeth, and Alex Kingston (Doctor Who, ER) as Lady Macbeth.

Directed by Olivier and Tony Award-winner Rob Ashford (Anna Christie, Thoroughly Modern Millie) and BAFTA Award-winner Kenneth Branagh, this unique production of Shakespeare’s tragic tale of ambition and treachery unfolds within the walls of an intimate deconsecrated Manchester church.

Kenneth Branagh has long been lauded as one of the great Shakespearean interpreters. His skills as a writer, director, and actor have garnered international acclaim across the disciplines of stage, film, and television, and he is the only man to be nominated in five different categories for an Academy Award.

Alex Kingston
won critical acclaim for her numerous television roles including Dr. Elizabeth Corday in ER and River Song in Doctor Who. A former member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, performing in Much Ado About Nothing, King Lear, and Love’s Labour’s Lost among others, Kingston was recently seen on the London stage in Luise Miller at the Donmar Warehouse.

Rob Ashford
has directed and choreographed productions on both sides of the Atlantic. From collaborations with the Donmar Warehouse and National Theatre to Broadway, Ashford has a string of nominations and awards to his name including an Olivier Award for Anna Christie and nominations for A Streetcar Named Desire and Parade and a Tony Award for Thoroughly Modern Millie.
