2018 sees two major productions of ‘The Scottish Play’ – one at the RSC and the other at the National Theatre. Two OSD graduates will be in Polly Findlay’s production for the RSC which opens at Stratford on 13 March and plays until 18 September. It will also be broadcast live in cinemas on 11 April.
The production stars Christopher Eccleston in his RSC debut as Macbeth, with Niamh Cusack as Lady Macbeth in what promises to be a thrillingly dark, modern production. Both Paul and Tom are no strangers to the RSC: Paul’s previous productions include Antony and Cleopatra, Julius Caesar and Titus Andronicus and Tom’s Arden of Faversham and The Roaring Girl.
