Macbeth by William Shakespeare, adapted by Chris Connaughton.
Touring 1st of September until the 9th of October.
“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes.”
This all female, 3 hander version of the well known (and very gruesome) Shakespeare classic will tour to theatres, community venues, village halls and schools this Autumn.
Adapted by writer and director Chris Connaughton and directed by NTC Associate Director Alice Byrne, this will be a streamlined version of the original piece and performed in NTC’s unique, fast paced and extremely physical style. The show will feature original music and will largely be told from the perspective of the witches. Exploring ideas of manipulation through the media and other external forces, the show will include all of the grim, gory and grisly elements that everyone loves and expects from the tale of Macbeth. Perfect for those not particularly familiar with Shakespeare’s work and die hard fans alike.
Show runtime: 40 minutes each half with a 15 minute interval (or quick 5 minute interval if a schools performance).
