The Macbeths

The Macbeths are hosting a dinner party. There will be food, drinks and karaoke, because enjoying yourself is always important, and entertainment is at the heart of every tragedy. But someone always has to pay in the end. Set as an immersive dinner party with karaoke, this new take on Shakespeare's classic tragedy is exploring how we consume violence as spectators and when we switch our empathy "on". Comedy, tragedy, disco and a lot of food will mix together as the dead are leaving the stage and joining the auditorium. You have nothing to worry about. You do not have to do anything. You can just watch. Have a drink and a snack or two.
