Is this a dagger I see before me?? Or is it in fact a playful, kaleidoscopic and radical version of Macbeth
, from the exceptional Filter Theatre, co-produced by and premiering at Tobacco Factory Theatres.
Probably the latter then.
Filter’s new version of Macbeth
fuses Shakespeare’s corrosive, psychological thriller about ambition, power, witchcraft and sanity with innovative sound and music to take you on a strange, funny and scintillating journey to the epicentre of the “heat-oppressed brain”.
The Theatre’s irreverent and contemporary interpretations of the classics – Caucasian Chalk Circle, Twelfth Night
and A Midsummer Night’s Dream
– have gone down a storm in Bristol, the UK and across the world in the past few years so be sure to get your seat while there still are any!!
The play runs from Wednesday 3 – Saturday 20 September.
