Re-invented for 9-13 years-olds, 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.
Supported by Arena Theatre, Wolverhampton and funded by Arts Council England.
‘I cannot but imagine that Shakespeare himself would have loved this interpretation and that the visceral, earthy and mischievous re-telling of his story would have delighted him.’
