Same title as the upcoming Joel Coen movie : "Tragedy of".....although she's more the "right" (or traditional, whatever) age for the part at least
The four-time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan is to make her UK stage debut as Lady Macbeth in a “feminist” version of Shakespeare’s tragedy at the Almeida theatre in London. The production will reunite the Irish actor with James McArdle, her co-star in the 2018 film Mary Queen of Scots, and present a “more equivalent relationship” between the Macbeths than is usually shown, according to the Almeida’s artistic director, Rupert Goold.
The play will be staged by Yaël Farber, who Goold hailed as an “earthy, political, blood-and-mud kind of director” and promises, he said, to be a visceral experience in the intimate space of the Almeida. The Tragedy of Macbeth, as it will be billed, was in the works before theatres were closed because of the pandemic and Goold said he was relieved that he had been able to keep a team of such in-demand talents together. The play will open in September.
