THE MACBETHS

King Duncan has been brutally murdered and all evidence points to his sons Malcolm and Donalbain. Become a fly on the wall and witness the devastating and selfish events that lead to the ultimate demise of Macbeth and his wife from both their power-hungry perspectives. THE MACBETHS is set against a dynamic, cinematic background allowing the world of this iconic tragedy come to life.

  WHY THEY’LL IT

Because at the end of the day, Macbeth is Shakespeare’s coolest play bar none – murder, corruption, jealousy, greed, ambition, secrets, passion, power and the dark arts. And our version takes the form of a true crime documentary. What’s not to love?

  WHY YOU’LL IT

Your students get a clear overview of the key scenes in Macbeth, as well as being able to ‘look back’ on why Macbeth and Lady Macbeth did what they did, through interviews with characters who were intertwined in their story.
