In 1590 the future King of England, James VI of Scotland, sailed to Copenhagen to marry the Danish Princess Anne. Their return was blighted by such terrible storms the royal couple were almost shipwrecked. Under torture, Agnes Sampson of North Berwick confessed to welcoming the Devil on Auld Kirk Green with the express purpose of killing the King.

In 1606 the atmosphere across London was tense. The aloof James I was newly planted on his English throne, and his frequent treatises on the powers of witchcraft caused concern among the learned classes. It was in this world of suspicion and fear that William Shakespeare and the newly patronised King’s Men performed a new play examining the nature of kingship, power, mortality and the supernatural: Macbeth.

Newly arranged for the remains of The Rose Playhouse, join Shoreditch’s resident 5-star Shakespeare Company Malachite Theatre as we follow Shakespeare and his first Macbeth, Richard Burbage, south of the river from Shoreditch to Southwark, with this stunning new site-specific production.
