This October, Big Telly Theatre Company invites audiences to draw their curtains tight, turn off the lights and enter the realm of the witching hour for an up close and personal theatrical reboot of one of Shakespeare’s most well-known plays.
Directed by the theatre company’s founder Zoe Seaton, this atmospheric Macbeth is a 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.
The world premiere of this fully immersive digital theatrical production will open at the 58th edition of Belfast International Arts Festival (BIAF), Ireland’s leading contemporary international arts festival and the highlight of this year’s virtual programme. The show, which has been specifically produced for this socially distanced world, will be performed live on screen for four nights before transferring to Creation Theatre’s platform as a co-production until 31st October. A special midnight show will be performed on the 30th October, the night before All Hallow’s Eve.
The show runs for 21 performances across three weeks during the month of October.
For shows 14th – 17th October online at BIAF – Wed – Sat 7pm (Fri & Sat additional 9.30pm show) Booking until 17 Oct on the BIAF website.
