Macbeth - Bard in the BotanicsBard in the Botanics


Directed by Gordon Barr

“What’s done cannot be undone”

A prophesy is made – Macbeth shall be king – but the only way to achieve the crown is murder. Supported and encouraged by his wife, the deed is done but “blood will have blood” and soon their actions return to haunt them both.

Having ripped away the veneer of respectability and plunged into evil, this once glamorous couple descend in to a hell of their own making, their relationship and their sanity tested to breaking point in this tense, dramatic thriller.

A cast of 5 actors bring to life an electrifying new version of one of Shakespeare’s most popular and enduring plays.
