Flabbergast Theatre brings The Tragedy of Macbeth to the Southwark Playhouse March 14–April 8.

Flabbergast’s Macbeth fuses a respectful approach to text and storytelling to a lucid interpretation of Shakespeare’s blood-soaked tragedy.

The company presents an interpretation of Shakespeare’s most wretched tragedy, working to draw out the parallels with modern society. At its heart, the recurring theme and fundamental narrative in their production is the masculine fear of feminine power.
