by William Shakespeare


Temple Church, London

20 August – 7 September 2019


Inspired by supernatural promises, a powerful nobleman and his ambitious wife carve a bloody path to the throne of Scotland. But as the true horror of their crimes begins to be revealed, both the realm and its rulers are plunged into madness.


Shakespeare's heady brew of greed, murder and dark magic comes to London’s incomparably atmospheric Temple Church in Antic Disposition’s bold new production.


Located in the secluded heart of London’s legal quarter, between Fleet Street and the River Thames, Temple Church was built by the Knights Templar in the 12th-century and is one of London’s most beautiful and historic buildings. Perhaps best known for its unusual round form and stone effigies of medieval knights, Temple Church became famous more recently as a key location in Dan Brown’s novel, The Da Vinci Code.
