The Donmar Warehouse production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth plays the London venue December 8, 2023-February 10, 2024, with an official opening night December 15.

The Scottish play also features Moyo Akandé as Ross, Annie Grace as Musician and Gentlewoman, Brian James O’Sullivan as Donalbain/Soldier/Murderer and Musician, Casper Knopf as Macduff's Son/Fleance/Young Siward, Cal MacAninch as Banquo, Kathleen MacInnes as The Singer and ensemble, Alasdair Macrae as Musician and ensemble, Rona Morison as Lady Macduff, Noof Ousellam as Macduff, Raffi Phillips as Macduff's Son/Fleance/Young Siward, Jatinder Singh Randhawa as The Porter/Seytan, Ros Watt as Malcolm, and Benny Young as Duncan/Doctor.

The production uses binaural technology to create a 3D sound world, which the audience experiences through headphones, placing them inside the head of the central couple. Director Webster collaborated with sound designer Gareth Fry, who previously used binaural sound for Complicité’s The Encounter.

Live music comes from an onstage Scottish folk band led by composer and musical director Alasdair Macrae and featuring Gaelic singer Kathleen MacInnes.

The creative team also includes designer Rosanna Vize, lighting designer Bruno Poet, movement director Shelley Maxwell, fight directors Rachel Bown-Williams and Ruth Cooper-Brown of RC-Annie Ltd., and casting director Anna Cooper.
