Description

413 years ago Macbeth was first performed. 2019 sees the definitive production by multi-award winners Thom Tuck (The Penny Dreadfuls, Thom Tuck Goes Straight to DVD, Horrible Histories) and Tim FitzHigham (Paddington 2, After Life, BBC Radio 4’s The Gambler). With a script by Shakespeare (Coriolanus, Titus Andronicus, King John) and a different guest director daily. Two actors are, arguably, not enough actors. The greatest tragedy of Edinburgh 2019 – a very limited run, book early. Thom Tuck 'is a joy' (Scotsman). Tim FitzHigham: 'gut bustingly funny' (Scotsman). William Shakespeare: 'pretty good'.

This was tremendous fun , not least because the guest director on our night was the Guilty Feminist herself! Considering I paid £2.50 for a two for one preview, I felt I very much got my money's Worth!!
