Tradition requires that a 'ghost-light' be left on while the theatre is dark, to ward off restless ghosts and protect its magic from harm. The lights are off, but the magic is not gone. A closed theatre is a perfect playground for mischievous spirits intent on wreaking havoc. Three witches usher, stage manage and execute the tragedy of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, two innocents trapped in a Truman-esque reality which is both virtual and brutal. This is an imaginative reboot of Shakespeare's timeless, blood-soaked tale of murder, lust and power in a world where reality and illusion are hard to tell apart; a hinterland of hype where fate is twisted, control is remote, and comfort is in entirely another zone. A true theatrical experience performed live on Zoom - with the audience privy to every dilemma and dark corner of this classic text, left to their own devices, silent witnesses, invited guests...
