The National Theatre of Scotland, in association with Royal Lyceum, Edinburgh presents the Royal Shakespeare Company's critically-acclaimed production of Dunsinane. Macbeth is dead. Under cover of night, an English army has swept through the landscape, killed the tyrant and taken the seat of power. Attempting to restore peace and put in place a new ruler, the commanding officer is beset by a brutal guerrilla uprising and simmering discontent amongst his own inexperienced troops. Struggling to grasp the alien customs and politics of this harsh country, he finds himself drawn towards the tyrant’s powerful widow in search of someone to share his burden of responsibility. Increasingly isolated from his own men and Scottish allies alike, his efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control. Cast includes: Siobhan Redmond, Jonny Phillips and Brian Ferguson.
