Theatr Gen Byw: Macbeth
Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru in partnership with Cadw and with support from Chapter
“Fair is foul and foul is fair;
Hover through the fog and filthy air.”
The King of Scotland has generously rewarded his brightest warrior. But supernatural beings have predicted for Macbeth a far greater honour. When his merciless wife is captivated by the promise of infinite power, fuelling her husband’s fiendish ambition, he is doomed, and their devilish plans turn to bloody massacre.
Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru’s site-specific production – live from Caerphilly Castle – of Shakespeare’s brutal tragedy in a new Welsh translation by the late Gwyn Thomas.
Cast includes Richard Lynch (Pobol y Cwm, Hinterland) as Macbeth and Ffion Dafis (Byw Celwydd, Rownd a Rownd) as his merciless wife. Director: Arwel Gruffydd.
“Things bad begun make strong themselves by ill.”
