BAFTA-winning and Olivier and Golden Globe nominated actor James McAvoy (The Last King of Scotland, Atonement, X-Men) stars in Macbeth, Jamie Lloyd's (Donmar's Passion, Broadway's Cyrano de Bergerac, the Old Vic's The Duchess of Malfi, Royal Court's The Pride) inaugural production in a season of work for Trafalgar Transformed.
Running from 9 February until 27 April 2013, Macbeth is the first production in the reconfigured auditorium of Trafalgar Studios.
Design for Jamie Lloyd's season is by Soutra Gilmour, who has just won the 2012 Evening Standard award for Best Design for Inadmissible Evidence at the Donmar Warehouse, directed by Lloyd.
Shakespeare's darkest tale plays out in a dystopian Scotland brutalised by war. Under a toxic fog, Macbeth begins his tormented struggle for power fuelled by ambition and paranoia.
