The Watermill Theatre is bringing William Shakespeare’s Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Wilton’s Music Hall.
The ensemble's productions will run from late January to mid February at the venue in Graces Alley, Whitechapel, and come hot on the heels of their UK autumn tour.
Artistic director Paul Hart said: "I can think of no space more fitting than Wilton's - indeed our A Midsummer Night's Dream is literally set in a Victorian music hall, and the chance to return to such an intimate setting for Macbeth is hugely exciting."
Billy Postlethwaite, whose credits include Chernobyl and Game Of Thrones, will revive his performance of Macbeth in the production, which premiered at The Watermill Theatre in the spring of 2019.
Macbeth is set against the soundtrack of The xx, Johnny Cash and The Rolling Stones performed live by a cast of actor / musicians.
