Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood lead the cast of Rupert Goold’s highly acclaimed Chichester Festival Production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth into the Gielgud Theatre, Shaftesbury Avenue, for a 10 week season from Friday 21 September to Saturday 1 December. The press night was on Wednesday 26 September at 7.00pm.

The cast are Patrick Stewart (Macbeth), Kate Fleetwood (Lady Macbeth), Paul Shelley (Duncan), Scott Handy (Malcolm), Ben Carpenter (Donalbain), Martin Turner (Banquo), Michael Feast (Macduff), Mark Rawlings (Lennox), Tim Treloar (Ross), Bill Nash (Angus), Christopher Knott (Old Seyward), Christopher Nolan (Seyton), Hywel John (Bloody Captain), Suzanne Burden (Lady Macduff), Polly Frame, Niamh McGrady, Sophie Hunter (Witches).

It is directed by Rupert Goold, with design by Anthony Ward, movement director Georgina Lamb, lighting by Howard Harrison, music and sound by Adam Cork. This Chichester Festival Theatre Production is presented by Duncan C Weldon & Paul Elliott for Triumph Entertainment Ltd.

Rupert Goold directs this psychological and chilling tragedy in a stark, austere production that places Macbeth in a timeless and nameless country, with a law of its own. Disturbing and unsettling, this Macbeth centres on the building tensions, paranoia and fear that lead to violence and murder.

Macbeth sold out at the Minerva, Chichester Festival Theatre this summer whre the company also performed ‘Twelfth Night’ in repertory. Rupert Goold directed Patrick Stewart in the RSC ‘The Tempest’ at Stratford last year and at the Novello earlier this year. Patrick Stewart also played the lead in the RSC’s ‘Antony and Cleopatra’ at Stratford and the Novello. He is the voice for ‘Earth’, from the BBC ‘Planet Earth’, for theatrical distribution by Lionsgate in November. Patrick Stewart originated the role of Jean-Luc Picard in the Award winning series ‘Star Trek’. His very extensive film and TV career includes 3 ‘X-Men’ and 4 ‘Star Trek’ films. Rupert Goold is directing Simon Schama’s ‘Rough Crossings’ for Headlong in September.
