Macbeth - The Lord Chamberlain's Men
Sunday 31st May 2020
Where: Main Abbey
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 witches 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.
“It will have blood, they say; blood will have blood.”
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 Elizabethan costumes, music and dance. Following last year’s sell-out smash please do book early to avoid missing out!
