National Theatre Live will broadcast Manchester International Festival’s production of Macbeth, with Kenneth Branagh (My Week With Marilyn, Hamlet) in his first Shakespeare performance in over a decade as Macbeth, and Alex Kingston (Doctor Who, ER) as Lady Macbeth.

One of the Bard’s most infamous tales of deceit, murder, and witchcraft; “The Scottish Play”, as it is referred to due to the curse surrounding it, is perhaps the most astounding portrayal of power-hungry madness. Previously adapted by such luminaries as Orson Welles, Roman Polanski and Akira Kurosawa (as Throne of Blood).
