In the darkness something stirs Visceral Witches gather and spin their words Soundscapes clatter
In the darkness something stirs
Witches gather and spin their words
Screams are heard
Whispers of murder
Lurk in the shade
“Something wicked this way comes” set in the 11th century and faithful to Shakespeare’s text this retelling centres on the witches and their thirst for revenge. They choose a champion to challenge the Christian kings and Macbeth answers the call.
“Is this a dagger I see before me” Murder, poetry and sword fighting combine as the tale unfolds using candle light to ignite the imagination and chill the soul. Things are about to get very dark indeed.
Macbeth is brought to life by this talented and enthralling story-telling company, igniting the imagination with poetry, sound-scapes, shadows and movement. Faithful to the text and famous Shakespeare characters. Suitable for those studying the play at GCSE as well as lovers of the Bard. NOT TO BE MISSED.
