£9 concessions / £11 normal price
This is London, October 1987. This is a tale of greed, betrayal and murder. This is Macbeth. On the trading floor, success is all and ruthless ambition is rewarded. The only problem is, how do you control it before it consumes you? Award-winning theatre company Proteus present a highly physical re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth as a corporate thriller set against the backdrop of the ‘greed is good’ culture of 1980s Britain. This new production features movement from George Mann of Ad Infinitum and is set to a pulsing soundtrack of 80s electro hits, synth-inspired modern classics and interwoven with specially composed original music.
