By William Shakespeare
Directed by Loveday Ingram

In an age of political uncertainty and controversial leaders, Shakespeare’s immortal thriller is given new relevance and a contemporary twist. Loyalty collides with ambition in the ultimate tale of popular leadership, rise to power, and winning over the people.

In a slick, modern setting, ruthless politicians occupy the shadowy corridors of power, conspiring with and against each other as the race to claim the empire spins violently out of control.

This production will be held in both Storyhouse and Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre; choose between the scenic landscape of Grosvenor Park or Chester’s stunning new theatre and arts centre. Prices vary with demand, so book early for the best seats at the lowest price.
