WHAT'S ON: FULL LISTINGS
Sun 31st October 2021 6:00PM
Directed by Beth Wood
A powerful and haunting adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.
When Macbeth kills Duncan and all that is best in himself, the world turns upside down.
Beautiful poetry hits against heightened horror in this ensemble-focused retelling, drawing us into a world of festering ambition and hunger for power that seems frighteningly like our own.

Maryland by Lucy Kirkwood

“This play was for many years a private conversation with myself. The horrific murders of Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa this year have galvanised me into making it public. I hesitate to even call it a play when it is simply a howl, a way of expressing what I feel about a culture of violence against women, but I am sharing it because I wonder if it might express a little of what other people feel about it too. It was written very quickly, and I am grateful to the Royal Court for snatching up a gauntlet thrown down last Friday night with such energy, care and seriousness.“ – Playwright Lucy Kirkwood
The Royal Court Theatre has offered the Maryland performance script for free for any theatre company or drama training organisation in the UK interested to stage their own script-in-hand reading.
