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.
