The thane of Cawdor is returning to his castle next month in a touring production of the Scottish play.
A Glasgow-based theatre company are staging a one-off showing of Macbeth in the grounds of Cawdor Castle.
Cawdor plays a key role in the Shakespeare play, with Macbeth inheriting lordship of the castle early in the drama – setting in motion his tragic ambition to become king.
The new adaptation is produced by the Bard in the Botanics festival and is directed by Gordon Barr.
This version of Macbeth is set in the 1950s and stars Kirk Bage as the eponymous monarch with Nicole Cooper as Lady Macbeth and Robert Elkin as the witch.
The five-hander is currently being staged in its home in Glasgow’s Botanic Gardens and will visit Stirling, Dundee and St Andrews before reaching Cawdor for one night on the evening of Sunday, August 7.
Director Mr Barr said: “Taking Macbeth on tour is an important part of our 15th anniversary celebration.
“Finishing our 15th anniversary programme with a performance against the backdrop of Cawdor Castle is a particular pleasure, especially with this new production of Macbeth,” he added.
Tickets are available from Cawdor Castle and cost £15 for adults and £8 for children.
