Macbeth
re-imagined for everyone aged six and over

03 July 2010 - 31 July 2010

By William Shakespeare

A spellbinding concoction of witches, battles, ghosts and murder, Macbeth is one of our programme of Shakespeare plays re-imagined for family audiences.

Three witches foretell that Macbeth will be crowned King. Driven by ambition and encouraged by his ruthless wife, he secretly assassinates the current monarch to realise the prophecy. However, as Macbeth claims the throne, he is haunted by the demons of his past and his fate is set.
