Visit our blog on the Light House Poole website:

In a land almost afraid to know itself, in a country where unnatural deeds are commonplace, and where the night is filled with a restless ecstasy, Shakespeare’s tragedy of ambition and guilt unfolds.

Platform 4’s production creates a taut psychodrama that crackles with a wild electricity, brought alive by the sonic experiments of composer and guitarist Bic Hayes and sound designer Jules Bushell.

Characters appear and disappear from the shadows as part of a nightmarish vision, played out under an immense canopy of darkness.

Building on the success of their Tempest, this Macbeth employs sparse staging and creates unique atmospheres whilst keeping the play intact, compelling, and fresh.

“Platform4’s strong visual approach create theatrical rough magic.”
Lyn Gardner The Guardian

This piece sees us collaborating with co-Artistic Directors Tamsin Fessey and Lynne Forbes of Dorset based Angel Exit Theatre
