Double Trouble: Macbeth comes to Cardiff, twice

The Pantaloons: Macbeth

This is not a story for the faint hearted. It’s the story of how old King Duncan died. It’s a story of murder and betrayal. It’s a story of supernatural sorcery. And it’s a story that’s going to be retold as you’ve never seen it before.

Taking their cues from film noir, gangland Britain and the clowning tradition (yes, really) the critically acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre company put their own contemporary spin on Shakespeare’s most dangerous play.

Tragic and hilarious in equal measures, this innovative take on ‘The Scottish Play’ (Macbeth) features female fatale, high-speed chases, killer lines, killer crimes, and some seriously weird sisters.

Macbeth (15)

UK/2015/113mins/15. Dir: Justin Kurzel. With: Michael Fassbender, Marion Cotillard, David Thewlis, Paddy Constantine.

Macbeth, a duke of Scotland and fearless warrior, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become king. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself, but he cannot escape his fate. A thrilling and visceral retelling of one of history and literature’s most compelling characters.

+ Join us for an introduction from Dr Ceri Sullivan, School of English, Communication and Philosophy at Cardiff University on Thu 22 Oct.
