Macbeth (Flabbergast Theatre)

14th September 2023 - 16th September 2023

 

In this classic tale of greed and guilt, Flabbergast Theatre’s Macbeth fuses a rigorous and respectful approach to text and storytelling to bring a magical, lucid interpretation of Shakespeare’s blood-soaked tragedy to life.

Flabbergast gives us an instinctive view of Shakespeare’s most wretched tragedy, working to draw out the parallels with modern society. At its heart, the dominant recurring theme and fundamental narrative that powers The Tragedy of Macbeth is the masculine fear of feminine power; and in this sense, the play is as pertinent today as it has ever been. This timeless work examines what it meant to be a man, and what it meant to be a woman and underscores the social contracts between the two that dictate the actions of the protagonists.

Playing to their strengths and background in puppetry, clown, mask, ensemble and physical theatre, Flabbergast present the bard’s original text accompanied by and supported with exhilarating live music to produce a provocative and enjoyably accessible show. The beautifully performed music and vocal work combine into a powerful live soundscape creating an atmosphere that both compliments and juxtaposes the action.  With a stripped back set, and an aesthetically arresting design, the tight knit ensemble of actors performs a dark and visceral manifestation of the work’s essence and underlying themes.

★★★★ “As captivating as it is unsettling” The Telegraph

★★★★★ “This is an exciting and vital interpretation of Macbeth which serves to invigorate one of Shakespeare’s best-known plays with a new intensity.” British Theatre Guide

★★★★ ”Flabbergast Theatre stayed loyal to a classic but approached it in a refreshing and visually beautiful way” Voice Magazine

Recommended for Ages 12+

Running time: Approx. 2 hours 15 minutes (including interval)

There will be a post-show discussion in the Festival Theatre following the Thursday evening performance.
