MACBETH - BLOOD WILL HAVE BLOOD 2015 TOUR

‘My advice for those considering bringing their children to see this groundbreaking production is: kill to get a ticket.’ Roy Leighton, author of Success in the Creative Classroom

A macabre porter is trapped inside a two-dimensional portal. Summoned by the arrival of an audience, he leads us into the dark heart of Shakespeare’s play, offering young audiences a glimpse of life under Scotland’s tyrant King.

Razor sharp storytelling, a dramatic on-screen world and a heart-stopping soundtrack take us on a break-neck journey through the blood-soaked world of Macbeth.

Reinvented for young audiences, Macbeth – Blood Will Have Blood is an accessible and unforgettable introduction to Shakespeare’s shocking story of ambition, greed and the abuse of power.
‘Open mouthed. Even the most fidgety, hard to reach pupils were immersed and in the moment. You took them with you 100% and left them wanting more.’
