By the pricking of my thumbs…

Macbeth and Wife

Something wicked comes to Christchurch this winter season as Elmwood Players delves into the waking nightmare of Scotland’s most infamous hero.

More than 400 years of history have not diminished the engrossing power of Shakespeare’s darkest and bloodiest work: Macbeth has fascinated and enthralled every generation with its gripping depiction of the pitfalls of rampant power-lust and ambition.

 

This new interpretation, directed by Sam Fisher, combines a contemporary context with all the fascinating drama of a medieval horror. Commander of the modern-day Scottish forces in Afghanistan, a heroic and victorious Macbeth finds himself suddenly plunged into a phantasmagoric realm of witchcraft, carnage and madness that takes him right back to the dark ages — the dark ages both of time and of his soul.

 

Come in, come in to this dark and forbidding castle on the wild Scottish heath, where fair is foul and foul is fair and all manner of mysterious things hover in the murky air, and watch this pageantry of hell unfold…
