The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, the UK’s premier all male theatre company – with direct links to the history of William Shakespeare – invite you to join them this summer for the breathless and brilliant tragedy, Macbeth. “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes” Emerging victorious and decorated in war Macbeth receives a thrilling pronouncement from three weird sisters who prophesy he will one day be King of Scotland. Overcome by ambition and driven on by his powerful wife, Macbeth murders the king and sets in motion a terrible sequence of events from which there is no turning back. A play of supernatural magic, vaulting ambition and an examination of the dreadful consequences of the insatiable lust for power. With Shakespeare’s most chilling power couple and truly stirring poetry, this stunning play will keep you gripped. Bring a chair and a picnic, and prepare to be entertained and transported watching Shakespeare as he first saw it performed; in the open air, by an all-male cast with Elizabeth costumes, music and dance.
