Come and be pulled deep into the world of The Bard's darkest tragedy with this alchemic solo performance from theatre artist and storyteller Debs Newbold.
From worthy warrior to marked man, from hero to murderer; Macbeth's fate is set from the start in this tense and gripping re-telling of Macbeth, the third in Debs Newbold’s trilogy of re-imagined Shakespeares.Originally commissioned by the Hay Literary Festival, a sell-out at Shakespeare's Globe and the talk of festivals both in the UK and abroad, this is an unforgettable, shimmering work of performance storytelling that will haunt you for a very long time to come.
