Macbeth Theatre Show
This show is being very well received by schools. We have cut the play with the sharpest of knives to make it a lean one hour nightmare machine. In our production Macduff invites you to hear his haunting tale of the murderous Macbeth’s and how they tore his and Scotland’s life apart.
Set in the original story time of 1040, these dark age warriors recreate their broadsword battles, witches dances and bloody horror. With Macduff narrating, it allows the beautiful poetry to fly as the audience can understand the plot more easily.
Shakespeare in a Suitcase traveling players present their production of Macbeth for a younger audience.
‘Tempted by the supernatural weird sisters to break their bonds of trust and murder their King,the Macbeths unleash the forces of nature’s revenge. This production focuses on the play’s theme of killing an anointed king, that is the greatest crime. A very popular view with Shakespeare’s patron King James 1st.
Our Shakespeare in a Suitcase production has witches, warriors and ghosts supported by our audience of rapping ‘wraith-ravens’ where they join in as the chorus with ‘Hubble Bubble’ rap.’
“Many thanks for a wonderful show on Friday. The pupils have given positive feedback and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Incidentally, our drama HOD said that he had recently been to see The National Theatre touring versions for schools (Macbeth) and felt that the National Theatre tried to be too ‘down with the kids with gimmicky stuff’ and felt that your performance was way better in terms of the acting and was truer to text.”

“Just wanted to send a quick message to thank Splats for the performance of ‘Macbeth’ this morning at Great Baddow High School. I thought this was a good quality performance and really helpful for the students. We would be interested in another performance of this play, in July this year, for our current year 10s.

“One of the great terrifying morality, mystery plays with its witches, warriors and ghosts. Follow the tragic fall of the Macbeths, who could defeat anything but their own gullible greed. Are dark forces in play or did they fool themselves? All hail Macbeth and find out with us.“
