Lyric Theatre Belfast: Macbeth and the witches meet again, in thunder, lightning, but probably no rain (we get enough of that as it is). The hurly burly’s all but done and now it’s time to have some fun.
Witchcraft? Yes. Murder? Yes. Tragedy? Not this time!
Scotland’s greatest hero returns to plumb the depths of his darkest ambitions. Watch as he descends from legend to villain whilst always remaining a bit of an idiot. As he dives off the cliff of virtue into the pool of evil, perhaps he’ll even do a couple of somersaults as he falls!
In a world of buffoons can an idiot be king? How many murders is too many? Can you be truly tragic if everything’s really funny?
Commedia of Errors return, doing what they do best. Prepare to laugh, cry and be shocked… by how low we’ll stoop for a laugh. This is ‘Macbeth’ like you’ve never seen it – physical, guttural and intelligent – full of energy, comedy and all of the darkness and death that keeps audiences coming back to Shakespeare’s classic.
Starring: Conor Hinds, Rosie McClelland and Benjamin Gould.
