Shakespeare in the Vines - Macbeth Leura Park
Macbeth is undoubtedly one of Shakespeare’s most powerful and popular works, a classic tale of power, superstition and madness. Tempted by the prophecies of three mysterious witches and encouraged by his power hungry wife, Macbeth’s ambition to be King of Scotland leads him into a nightmarish world of evil, deceit, and murder. Shakespeare’s rousing tragedy if filled with ferocious battles, supernatural horrors, stunning language and some of the Bard’s most vivid characters.
In a time where people are hooked on Game of Thrones and Black Mirror - where political ambition drives decisions at any cost, Essential Theatre takes it back to where it all began.
As the sun sets, the dark night approaches and the witches come out to play let yourself be taken on this tremendous journey.
