After two critically acclaimed seasons of Shakespeare, Daniel Taylor Productions return to the Epstein in Spring 2019 to bring you the Bard’s most brilliant and bloody tale.
Set in the aftermath of a ruinous civil war in Scotland, this exciting new production explores the damaging psychological effects of war, betrayal and destructive political ambition by those who seek power for it’s own sake.
Brought to life with the same passion and brilliance that has made Daniel Taylor’s shows a highlight of the city’s cultural calendar. So whether thunder, lighting or in rain be sure to brave the elements and come down to grab your tickets for one of our most exciting shows yet!
Sean Jones and Warwick Evans will play Macbeth and King Duncan respectively, along with Daniel Taylor who will both produce and direct the production. The three actors have all previously starred together in Willy Russell’s iconic musical Blood Brothers. Sean Jones having played the role of Mickey for almost two decades in both the West End and touring production; Warwick Evans starred as the Narrator in the original production on the West End as well as Toronto, Sydney and on Broadway; whilst Daniel Taylor has played the role of Sammy on both the West End and touring production.
No stranger to Shakespeare, Sean makes a return to the Scottish play having previously played both Macduff and Banquo in a Japanese national tour.
With theatre in his blood, Warwick Evans made his stage debut in 1961 and has since gone on to establish a successful career on stage and screen, including Miff Ferrie in Daniel Taylor Productions’ The Tommy Cooper Show and three periods of repertory theatre at Leicester’s Haymarket Theatre.
Daniel Taylor was born and lives in Liverpool and in 2016 he toured the UK, Ireland, Canada and the US in the title role of Lennon: Through A Glass Onion. His acting credits also include the role of Mickey in Alan Bleasdale’s 40th anniversary production of Down the Dock Road (Royal Court, Liverpool), as well as playing the title role in and producing The Tommy Cooper Show.
