Live. Virtual. Immersive. On Zoom.
Tradition requires that a ‘ghost-light’ be left on while the theatre is dark, to ward off restless ghosts and protect its magic from harm.
The lights are off, but the magic is not gone.
A closed theatre is a perfect playground for mischievous spirits intent on wreaking havoc. Three witches usher, stage manage and execute the tragedy of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, two innocents trapped in a Truman-esque reality which is both virtual and brutal.
This is an imaginative reboot of Shakespeare’s timeless, blood-soaked tale of murder, lust and power in a world where reality and illusion are hard to tell apart; a hinterland of hype where fate is twisted, control is remote, and comfort is in entirely another zone.
A true theatrical experience performed live on Zoom – with the audience privy to every dilemma and dark corner of this classic text, silent witnesses, invited guests, left to their own devices.
Fully immersive, and loaded with technology, this show has great appeal for a wide audience (recommended for ages 14+) and is specifically designed for this socially distanced world.
As this is a live, interactive experience, performed on Zoom, we recommend viewing it on a laptop/computer/tablet with no more than 4 people per screen. It is £20 per screen for standard performances and £8 per head for schools performances.
