Following the international success of its previous Shakespeare productions Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Tobacco Factory Theatres co-produced a brand new Macbeth with Filter Theatre in 2014.
Whence is that knocking? How is it with me, when every noise appalls me?
Three weird sisters demarcate an area on stage. They operate a strange collection of electronic musical apparatus. Macbeth is invited in to play.
Playful, kaleidoscopic and horrific, Filter’s radical version of Macbeth fuses Shakespeare’s corrosive, psychological thriller about ambition, power, witchcraft and sanity with innovative sound and music to take you on a strange, funny and scintillating journey to the epicentre of the “heat-oppressed brain”.
Available for Touring. See more about Filter Theatre’s work over on their website.
