Event: -
The Scottish play has been taken in a bold direction by the Mark Bruce Company, who have used dance theatre to retell this famous tale. Mark Bruce's Macbeth will be at the Theatre Royal Winchester for only two nights on Wednesday 31st January and Thursday 1st February.

With a cast of only 9, the production uses simple but striking costumes and set to bring this modern take on Macbeth alive. Dancers clad in black weave the tragic story of Macbeth and his wife Lady Macbeth, a couple driven to self-destruction and madness as they're sent on a murder spree by the whispers of deamons. Their own greed leads to their destruction.

The story sticks fairly true to Shakespeare's original play, but it is delivered in a bold new way. Even those who aren't familiar with much dance theatre will find the performance moving and emotive. The show does have some dark themes, and is recommended for audiences over 11 years of age. The show contains scenes of violence, gore and blood
