Tony Award–winner Alan Cumming in his riveting solo interpretation of Shakespeare’s tragedy

Star of stage, film, and television Alan Cumming delivers a virtuoso performance playing every role in the National Theatre of Scotland’s bold presentation of Shakespeare’s chilling tale of desire, ambition, and the supernatural.

This radical reimagining of one of Shakespeare’s most deeply psychological plays is set in a psychiatric unit in which Cumming is the lone patient. Channeling the story of Macbeth, he is inhabited in turn by each of the characters of the drama, including some of Shakespeare’s most complex and troubled creations.

Cumming’s one-man interpretation of Shakespeare’s Scottish play comes to audio directly from acclaimed limited stage engagements with the National Theatre of Scotland in Glasgow and at New York’s Lincoln Center. Directed for audio by the stage production’s renowned directors, this exclusive studio recording of Cumming’s dazzling solo performance captures the excitement, passion, and poetry of a wildly original tour de force that is destined to become theatrical legend.

Quotes & Awards

  • Macbeth is a blast…ghoulish…beguiling…sardonic…an expression of how captivating an evening of crackling Shakespeare can be.”

    Washington Post

  • “The explosive and overwhelming effect of a truck bomb…This horrific, riveting Macbeth ought to be [heard] by as many people as possible.”

    Wall Street Journal

  • “With an authentic Scottish accent, Cumming ably embodies Lord Macbeth. He shifts from character to character seamlessly, capturing the tone, attitude, and emphasis of each, while providing an increasing intensity that conveys the reprehensible, irreparable nature of the title character’s actions.”
