Want to expose your kids to Shakespeare in a fun, and understandable fashion? Now is your opportunity to do so, thanks to Company 13’s Macdeth showing at Arts Centre Melbourne Macdeth from 19 - 21 January 2017.
Macdeth at Arts Centre Melbourne
This comical, fake-blooded tale performing in the Fairfax Studio, combines Shakespeare’s rich language with a healthy dose of invention and idiocy.
This ‘Scottish play’ tells a different sort of tragedy! Macdeth pulls no punches, featuring all the previously omitted scenes - the witches brewing up a hallucinogenic cat soup, King Duncan revealing his undying passion for chocolate cake, and the gothic love story of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
Created for children aged eight and above and their families, the show is perfect for kids who are new to Shakespeare or those who think the classics are a ticket to the land of sleep.
The side-splitting tale preserves all the murder and foul play; the injustice and cruelty, and the horror of one man’s ambition gone horribly wrong… albeit in a fun way. This is Shakespeare unplugged and re-wired, performed with stupidity and skill.
