Macbeth comes to Bord Gáis Energy Theatre in February 2018

We are proud to announce that Shakespeare’s renowned play, Macbeth, will take to the stage from Tuesday 20 Feb – Saturday 24 Feb 2018. Tickets go on sale on Friday 25 August at 9AM through Ticketmaster.

Following the success of Hamlet 2017, Icarus Theatre Collective return bringing Shakespeare for the Game of Thrones generation. The vicious, barbaric undercurrent in Shakespeare’s most fear-filled tragedy erupts in this kinetic, blood-thirsty production.

Unrivalled on the battlefield, Macbeth is rewarded with rank and favour by a grateful king. But war has left scars. With each enemy Macbeth butchers to serve his own vaulting ambition, his lust for power takes a more menacing grip. Spectres slaughtered on the battlefield drip poison in his ear, and passions erupt as he ferociously seizes the throne. But, violence breeds violence, and a reign born in blood quickly spirals out of control as Macbeth's demons return to destroy him.

Set in the 11th century and culminating in an epic battle filled with revenge, justice, and beheadings, Icarus blends traditional and physical theatre and brings vividly to life some of literature’s most vibrant language and characters.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 25 August at 9AM through Ticketmaster.
