CONTENDER CHARLIE, CHINA PLATE AND WARWICK ARTS CENTRE PRESENT

MACBETH - BLOOD WILL HAVE BLOOD 2015 TOUR

Following sell-out tours in 2013 and 2014, Contender Charlie, China Plate and Warwick Arts Centre once again join forces to present this thrilling production of Macbeth for 9-13 year-olds.

Trailer of the original immersive production of Macbeth – Blood Will Have Blood:

NB – this trailer shows the original production, not the new one-man production

‘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.’
