‘All hail Macbeth that shalt be King hereafter…’ With these portentous words, the three witches seal the fate of the Thane of Glamis – and also that of all the others whom Macbeth will dispose of on the way to fulfilling their deadly prophecy.
An electrifying new adaptation of Shakespeare’s infamous tragedy and widely-studied classic, that retells the old story of the 11th century Scottish king, and examines the physical and psychological damage done by political ambition – both to those who seek power for its own sake, and to those who get in their way…
Premiered in August 2020, and received with much acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe 2023, Emma King-Farlow’s adaptation features a certain amount of original material yet remains true to its source, both in tone and content.
“A sparkling gem of a show with a really innovative take on the physical and mental damage that flows from misplaced political ambition” Fringereview.co.uk
