Macbeth: Sept 2016 - March 2017

Splendid Productions present their first stab at Shakespeare with an hour-long creative adaptation of MACBETH.

A dagger-sharp cast of three take down Shakespeare’s classic tale of ambition, betrayal, murder and manipulation in a boiling hell-broth of tragedy, comedy, physical theatre and song.

The in-school tour is now provisionally SOLD OUT, but you can still you can come and see it in selected theatres - full details are below.

Have you ever wanted
your life to be MORE?
New goals, new opportunities;
a whole new YOU?
Stop wishing. Start DOING.
BELIEVE in yourself:
limits only exist in your mind.
The best way to predict
the future is to CREATE it...
We’re only telling you what you
already know: YOU’RE THE KING.

Ticket prices: £12 (£10 concs) Prices may vary where booking fees apply. Group rates are available, please contact theatres for details.

Splendid present a brand new version of MACBETH. It’s a great example of a creative adaptation: a Brechtian-style episodic structure with a minimum of props, lights and scenery and maximum use of performance skills including physical theatre, clowning, audience interaction and song.

Use it as a springboard for your students’ devising process, a clear example of practitioner theory in practice, or an entertaining, accessible performance for live review supported by comprehensive notes and a future DVD release.

***UPDATE SUMMER 2016: As of July 2016 our in-school tour is provisionally sold out. This means that we currently have no further slots to offer in Autumn or Spring. However, there are often changes and cancellations, so if you would like to be added to our waiting list please use the enquiry forms or email us with your details and we will be in contact if a suitable date comes up. Alternatively tickets are still available for our performances in theatres, and the DVD of the show will be available after Christmas. In addition, we can also provide workshops outside of the tour schedule, and this can be linked to Macbeth or one of the wide range of workshop areas we cover.***

Once again we are offering in-school performances and shows in selected theatres (see schedule below). If you’d like us to come to you, we offer the 60-minute show with either a 90-minute workshop or post-show discussion, or the show plus 4hr workshop. Prices are below.

This year's workshops are: Macbeth (text / adaptation), Physical Theatre, and Brecht session.
