othellomacbeth + Post-show discussion

MACBETH: Who can be wise, amazed, temperate and furious, loyal and neutral, in a moment?

BIANCA: No man.

First Othello, then Macbeth – HOME and Lyric Hammersmith present a bold new two-hour staging of two of Shakespeare’s most famous tragedies, both renowned for their epic portrayals of jealousy, power and revenge.

The world premiere of othellomacbeth is designed for new and lifelong Shakespeare fans alike, offering a unique experience in which the voices of some of Shakespeare’s most iconic female characters are brought to the fore.

Directed by Jude Christian, who most recently co-directed the sell-out, Royal Court production of My Mum’s a Twat with Vicky Featherstone, as well as the 2015 hit Lela & Co, also at the Royal Court. Jude returns to Manchester following her work directing the Royal Exchange and Bush Theatre production of Parliament Square. Her collaboration with the Lyric Hammersmith continues following 2017’s The Seagull.

This production is designed by Basia Binkowska, the overall winner of the Linbury Prize 2017. The Linbury Prize is the UK’s most prestigious award for Stage Design, providing a unique opportunity for graduating designers to work with some of the UK’s leading theatre, opera and dance companies.
