PRODUCTION – MACBETH
12th July 2017 @ 8:30 pm - 11:00 pm£10.00 – £11.00
Written by William Shakespeare
When shall we three meet again?
In thunder, lightning, or in rain?
The Scottish Play is a massively powerful story of greed, ambition and lust for power. The shortest of Shakespeare’s tragedies, it crackles and hums with energy and possibility. Returning victorious from battle, Macbeth (a general in the service of King Duncan of Scotland) is hailed by three witches, who prophesy that he will become Thane of Cawdor and then King of Scotland. This supernatural encounter sets a terrible chain of events in motion…
Directed by Morgan Sweeney, this ambitious production will include a framing device to keep the audience informed of the story. It will also be a massive spectacle of staging and theatrical effects, with a large cast and music (including drums, early music, choral singers, and a moody underscore) and smoothly integrated audiovisual elements, to get the audience closer to the soliloquies and further out onto The Heath.
