You may remember him from Underbelly, but now Marcus Graham can now add Shakespeare to his already impressive CV. The Aussie screen icon has landed the title role of  Shakespeare’s The Tragedy of Macbeth which is drawing to a close tonight (12 September) at QUT Festival Theatre, Brisbane Powerhouse – so get in quick! Macbeth forms part of the entertaining cultural line up of this year’s Brisbane Festival.

Macbeth is a theatrical masterpiece. Shakespeare’s last and shortest tragedy was penned in the early seventeenth century and is considered by many as his darkest work. This celebrated tale of unhealthy ambition and lust for power combines murder, madness, human evil, guilt and the supernatural into one of the most performed works by history’s most famous playwright.

This compelling rendition of Macbeth, previewing September 7 and running until September 12, will be the first act to tread the boards at the new QUT Festival Theatre. Tonight’s show is on at 6.30pm. Contact: Brisbane Powerhouse Box Office 07 3358 8600 or visit www.brisbanefestival.com.au.

Yours in culture,
