Armed with just a suitcase, NIE’s ensemble of actor-musicians tell this big, famous (and gruesome!) story in a funny and accessible way.

With some help from the audience, the cast bring the story to life, unpacking an old tale with new meaning. What happens when Macbeth is tempted by power and riches? Should he go after what he truly desires?

A combination of Shakespearean verse and contemporary language (and the occasional recap!) makes the original story clear and easy to follow.

Punctuated effortlessly by an original soundtrack, live music and sound effects, the cast will create comedy, tragedy, fast action and terrifying power.
