Macbeth – Sunday 25th July, 6pm
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, the UK’s premier all male theatre company invite you to join them this summer for the breathless and brilliant tragedy, Macbeth. “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.” Emerging victorious and decorated in war Macbeth receives a thrilling pronouncement from three weird sisters who prophesy he will one day be King of Scotland. Overcome by ambition and driven on by his powerful wife, Macbeth murders the king and sets in motion a terrible sequence of events from which there is no turning back. Age recommendation: 9+
The production will be held on the stunning South Lawn of the Palace Gardens, in the shadow of the romantic ruins of the Great Hall.
All shows can be booked on The Bishop’s Palace website (www.bishopspalace.org.uk) and theatre-goers should bring a picnic blanket or low-backed seating.
The performances will go ahead whatever the weather, so do dress accordingly for the Great British Summer!
