Doctor Who star Alex Kingston will join Kenneth Branagh to play that famously bewitched couple the Macbeths.
The actors, who cut their theatrical teeth at the Royal Shakespeare Company, will lead the Manchester International Festival production of Macbeth, which will be performed in a deconsecrated church in the city centre, from July 5 for just a two-week run — though there will be a one-off live broadcast on July 20.
Alex often returns to the stage — she was in Michael Grandage’s production of Luisa Miller at the Donmar two years ago — but hasn’t been back to the Bard since playing Desdemona at the Birmingham Rep two decades ago.

Just 75 days to go until the world again unites to protect the planet. Reblog if you’re joining us again in 2013 for Earth Hour. (Image WWF-UK/ Geoff Wilson)
