THE National Theatre’s gripping production of Macbeth will be broadcast at Cardigan’s Theatr Mwldan on Monday, May 14 (7pm)

The ruined aftermath of a bloody civil war. A brave general (Macbeth) receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland.

Ruthlessly fighting to survive, the Macbeths are propelled towards the crown by forces of elemental darkness.

Terrifying and intense, this brand new production of Shakespeare’s most intense and terrifying tragedy, is directed by the National Theatre’s artistic director Rufus Norris, 25 years after his last Shakespeare production.

Double Olivier award winning actor Rory Kinnear (Othello, Skyfall) and Olivier and BAFTA nominee Anne-Marie Duff (Sufragette, Shameless) play Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.

The cast also includes Nadia Albina, Michael Balogun, Stephen Boxer, Trevor Fox, Andrew Frame, Kevin Harvey, Hannah Hutch, Nicholas Karimi, Joshua Lacey, Penny Layden, Anna-Maria Nabirye, Amaka Okafor, Patrick O’Kane, Hauk Pattison, Alana Ramsey, Beatrice Scirocchi, Rakhee Sharma and Parth Thakerar.
