SUMMARY

Highly acclaimed Icarus Theatre Collective presents a bold and exciting performance of Shakespeare's most bloody and fear-filled tragedy.

The vicious, barbaric undercurrent in Shakespeare's epic erupts in this kinetic, blood-thirsty production. Victorious on the battlefield, Macbeth's nobility and bravery are rewarded by an indebted king. But with each enemy slaughtered to serve Macbeth's own vaulting ambition, his lust for power takes a deadly turn until he ferociously usurps the kingdom. His reign, baptised in blood, spirals out of control and Macbeth's deeds come back to tear him down.

Lauded as one of the most fearless and dynamic theatre companies in the UK, receiving critical accolades including Time Out's Critics Choice, and winning awards from as far afield as Romania, this new production goes straight for the jugular. Blending traditional and inventive physical theatre techniques, original music, evocative design, and using the original verse, this slick production is perfect for audiences new to Macbeth and those already well acquainted with Shakespeare's tragedies.

Admission: £11.50(£8.50)
