About The Three Inch Fools Present: Macbeth

Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s infamous Scottish play, Macbeth.

The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare’s plays across the UK. Their imaginative style is certain to delight and surprise those already familiar with the play, and to call out to those who have yet to discover it.

The Fools do Shakespeare differently – a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way. They will perform on the Orangerie lawn, providing an exceptional backdrop for this special event.

Synopsis
Shakespeare’s infamous Scottish tale imaginatively retold by a troupe of five multi-roling, music-playing actors. This physically driven and vibrant performance will tell the story of witchcraft, prophecy, a dominant wife, and Macbeth’s unstoppable desire to become King of Scotland. All of this accompanied by an original folk inspired soundtrack.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The Three Inch Fools Present: Macbeth are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
