“My dearest partner of greatness...”  

Multi award-winning and critically acclaimed ensemble The Faction bring their reputation for bold, innovative reimaginings of the classics to create a dazzling distillation of Shakespeare’s fast paced tragedy.

Performed entirely by two actors, Macbeth / Partners of Greatness presents Shakespeare’s play from the perspective of the Macbeths themselves.  Bound by an unspeakable loss, the inseparable pair share their ambition to take what they feel life owes them. Together, they experience the joy and terror of doing the unthinkable.

With a dynamic visual inventiveness this is a raw, intimate and surprising portrayal of a famous partnership for first time audiences and seasoned theatregoers alike.

Running time: 90 minutes + 20 minute interval
