Macbeth – Partners of Greatness

by William Shakespeare

  • Show Information

Directed by Mark Leipacher

“My dearest partner of greatness…”

A childless couple.

An ambitious partnership.

The things they can achieve together.

Prophecy + opportunity = murder.

The Faction’s bold and dynamic visual inventiveness and intelligent approach to text combine to create a dazzling distillation of Shakespeare’s fast-paced tragedy.

Created for two performers, Macbeth / Partners of Greatness tells the entirety of Shakespeare’s story through the Macbeths themselves. From the excitement of a soldier being told he will be king, to the inevitable bloody conclusion, the audience experience the joy and terror of Lord and Lady Macbeth’s private moments.

This is a raw, intimate, and passionate portrayal of their famous partnership.

The Faction is a multi-award-winning and critically acclaimed international theatre ensemble with a reputation for boldness, innovation and inventive ensemble physicality and a repertoire of reimagining Shakespeare’s work.
