The Donmar Warehouse’s ‘MACBETH’ starring David Tennant & Cush Jumbo announces West End transfer

The Donmar Warehouse’s critically acclaimed production of MACBETH, starring David Tennant and Cush Jumbo, will transfer to the Harold Pinter Theatre in London’s West End from 1 October until 14 December 2024.

Joining David Tennant (Macbeth) and Cush Jumbo (Lady Macbeth) are the full original Donmar Warehouse company – Moyo Akandé (Ross), Annie Grace (Musician & Gentlewoman), Brian James O’Sullivan (Donalbain/Soldier/Murderer & Musician), Casper Knopf (Macduff’s Son/Fleance/Young Siward), Cal MacAninch (Banquo), Kathleen MacInnes (The Singer & ensemble), Alasdair Macrae (Musician & ensemble), Rona Morison (Lady Macduff), Noof Ousellam (Macduff), Raffi Phillips (Macduff’s Son/Fleance/Young Siward), Jatinder Singh Randhawa (The Porter/Seytan), Ros Watt (Malcolm), and Benny Young (Duncan/Doctor).

This production of MACBETH will use binaural technology to create a 3D sound world, which the audience will experience through wearing headphones, placing them right inside the head of the central couple. Director Max Webster collaborates with sound designer Gareth Fry, who previously used binaural sound for Complicité’s multi-award-winning production The Encounter.

Live music will come from an onstage Scottish folk band lead by Alasdair Macrae and featuring award-winning Gaelic singer Kathleen MacInnes.

For every performance, a third of the tickets are priced at £35 or under; with the front row available for purchase on the day of performance at £25. In addition, the Donmar will extend its Donmar LOCAL programme to the West End, with free tickets for young people from up to ten schools in Camden and Westminster.

Matthew Byam Shaw, Nia Janis and Nick Salmon for Playful Productions, Wessex Grove, Donmar West End, Gavin Kalin Productions and Playing Field present The Donmar Warehouse production of MACBETH.

Priority booking for Donmar supporters opens today, with public booking opening at 10am on 25 April.
