Macbeth Open  Air Theatre at Newstead Abbey


Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s infamous Scottish play, Macbeth. The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays across the UK. The Fools do Shakespeare differently - a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way. Please take your own picnic blankets or low-backed seats to sit on. The show will only be cancelled if it is considered too dangerous to continue, not because of bad weather.

Date:   Sunday 16th June 2019
