Macdeth

60 minutes no interval

A funny, fake-bloody tale of greed and power….

Macdeth will blow the dust off your school room Shakespeare and rejuvenate your experience of seeing a true theatre classic. Performed in an immediate, filmic style, it is great for kids and adults who are convinced Shakespeare is going to be unfathomable and boring.

Be entertained by the stupidity and skill of Company 13 as they enact the dreadfully bloody tale of Macbeth’s passage from a comfortable nobleman to a despised tyrant.
A funny, cautionary tale that combines Shakespeare’s rich language with a healthy dose of invention and idiocy. A Shakespearian treat performed in an immediate and accessible style.  

The side-splitting tale combines Shakespeare’s rich language with everyday English. It pulls no punches, leaving in all the murder and foul play; all the injustice and cruelty; all the horror of one man’s ambition gone horribly wrong... but in a fun way. This is Shakespeare unplugged and re-wired, performed with stupidity and skill! Macdeth is the perfect show for audiences who love the classics with a twist.

‘Not dumbed down by any means but full of gags and self-reflective mayhem.’ Theatre Press, Rebecca Waese
