The newly-knighted Sir Kenneth Branagh is returning to the playwright who made him famous for the first time in more than a decade.

Branagh will play Macbeth for the first time in his career at Britain’s Manchester International Festival.

The event is held every two years. It features plays set in unusual venues. Branagh will star in the Scottish Play in a deconsecrated church. He will give 17 performances in the new production by Emmy and Tony award-winning director Rob Ashford.

It’s Branagh’s first appearance in a Shakespeare play since he starred in Richard III at the Sheffield Crucible in 2002.
