Continuing a charge of top screen acting talent to the London Stage, Bafta-winning and Golden Globe-nominated actor James McAvoy ('The Last King of Scotland', 'Atonement', 'X-Men') plays Macbeth in the inaugural production of a season of work entitled Trafalgar Transformed. Jamie Lloyd’s production sees Shakespeare’s darkest tale played out in a dystopian Scotland brutalised by war. Under a toxic fog, Macbeth begins his tormented struggle for power fuelled by ambition and paranoia. A power play held on the doorstep of Whitehall, this promises a classic Shakespearian piece, viewed through a dark contemporary prism.
