★★★★☆ “as captivating as it is unsettling.” The TelegraphFlabbergast’s Macbeth fuses a rigorous and respectful approach to text and storytelling to bring a magical, lucid interpretation of Shakespeare’s blood-soaked tragedy to life.Puppetry, clown, ensemble, physical theatre, and exhilarating live music, combine in a powerful and provocative interpretation. A stripped back set, an aesthetically arresting design, and a tightknit ensemble of actors, this performance is a dark and visceral manifestation of the work’s essence and underlaying themes, drawing out the parallels with modern society.The dominant recurring theme and fundamental narrative that powers The Tragedy of Macbeth is the masculine fear of feminine power; and in this sense, the play is as pertinent today as it has ever been.★★★★★ “An exciting and vital interpretation of Macbeth which serves to invigorate one of Shakespeare’s best-known plays with a new intensity.” British Theatre GuideTop 9 Shows Edinburgh Fringe “mind blown…” Stewart Lee★★★★★ Pick of the Fringe Mervyn Strutter★★★★★ “Don’t miss this, it’s a wonder to behold.” Bouquets and Brickbats★★★★☆ “Lending physical theatre to Shakespeare works so well!” Voice Mag★★★★☆ “Boy! have they produced a massive Macbeth… a stunning production… A pleasure to watch.” Mumble
