Blow the dust off your schoolroom Shakespeare and rejuvenate your experience of seeing a true theatre classic with Company 13's, Macdeth. Great for kids and adults alike who are convinced Shakespeare is going to be unfathomable and boring, Macdeth is a riveting and hilarious tale combining Shakespeare’s rich language with everyday English. It pulls no punches, taking audience members on a journey of murder and foul play, injustice and cruelty... and one man’s ambition gone horribly wrong.
This Melbourne International Comedy Festival, join Company 13 for this limited return season as they enact the dreadfully bloody tale of Macbeth’s passage from a comfortable nobleman, to despised tyrant. This is Shakespeare unplugged and re-wired! The perfect show for those who love their classics with a twist.
Launching in 2006, Company 13 started as a group of 13 theatre maker friends who had trained in Melbourne under the renowned teacher John Bolton in the Jacques le Coq tradition of European physical theatre forms. 12 years later the company are now incredibly well-known for their exquisite clowning, music, and storytelling. They create wickedly funny, dark, and thought provoking works.
"Not dumbed down by any means... full of gags and self-reflective mayhem." - Theatre Press
"As an adult who has seen Macbeth a good number of times I found this work enlightening... this show is totally worth catching..." - Stage Whispers
