Dickens Theatre Company presents


by William Shakespeare

An Essex playhouse, 1850.  

Unforeseen circumstances leave a Dickensian theatre company stripped down to just three actors. Undeterred, the troupe valiantly take on the multitude of roles in Shakespeare’s most bloody tragedy 

At just 70 minutes, this engaging and fast-paced adaptation of Macbeth is the perfect introduction to Shakespeare for a modern audience.   

With themes of ambition, power and revenge, this dynamic production captivates to the bitter end.  

*Please note that there will be no interval for the School/Matinee performances.

Post-Show Q&A – perfect for students!

Join us after each Matinee performance for a FREE Q&A with the cast of Macbeth and give your students the chance to further explore the plot, themes, characters and staging of the production. A great chance to enrich the curriculum and demonstrate that performing and hearing Shakespeare’s text helps it to become more relevant, exciting and clear- aiding study at all levels.
