Re-invented for young audiences, this new production of Macbeth – Blood Will Have Blood is an accessible and unforgettable introduction to Shakespeare’s shocking story of ambition, greed and the abuse of power.
Summoned by the arrival of the audience, a macabre Porter leads us into the dark heart of Shakespeare's play, offering young audiences (and their families) a glimpse of life under Scotland’s tyrant King. Using razor sharp storytelling, a dramatic on-screen world and a heart-stopping soundtrack this one-man adaptation takes us on a break-neck journey through the blood-soaked world of Macbeth.
