Macbeth Curse

1 hr |  Recommended age: 7-16

Have a professional theatre company which have toured major venues in the UK; visit your school!

This show is an excellent opportunity to engage students 7 to 16 in Macbeth.

Witty, light-hearted fun! 


This show is an energetic and dynamic adaptation of the Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth, written by Terry Deary. An entertaining introduction to the text or engaging revision tool. Watch as an Edwardian acting troupe weave their way through the story embracing the magic, mayhem, and madness of Shakespeare's creation using a combination of the playwright's own words, music hall songs, and all kinds of hilarity. A wild ride of wrestling with gruesome props, ghastly blunders and unexpected ghosts! Have they fallen foul of the infamous Macbeth Curse?
