In the darkness something stirs


Witches gather and spin their words

Soundscapes clatter

Screams are heard

Whispers of murder

Lurk in the shade



Love betrayed

“Something wicked this way comes” set in the 11th century and faithful to Shakespeare’s text this retelling centres on the witches and their thirst for revenge. They choose a champion to challenge the Christian kings and Macbeth answers the call.

“Is this a dagger I see before me” Murder, poetry and sword fighting combine as the tale unfolds using candle light to ignite the imagination and chill the soul. Things are about to get very dark indeed.

Macbeth is brought to life by this talented and enthralling story-telling company, igniting the imagination with poetry, sound-scapes, shadows and movement. Faithful to the text and famous Shakespeare characters. Suitable for those studying the play at GCSE as well as lovers of the Bard. NOT TO BE MISSED.
