Macbeth & A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Wednesday 5 to Friday 7 December 2018,
Birkbeck Studio, 19:30


The Y7-10 play will see the creation of the SES Shakespeare Company, who will present one-act versions of two of Shakespeare’s most famous works. Returning home from battle, the victorious Macbeth meets three witches on the heath. Driven by their disturbing prophecies, and with the encouragement of his wife, he sets out on the path to murder. Will he ever be the same again? On a Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves in an enchanted forest where sprites lurk and fairies rule. Their paths are crossed by mechanicals presenting a play within a play. Chief mischief-maker Puck is on-hand to ensure that the course of true love is anything but smooth, and games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue.
