Illyria present Macbeth at Aberystwyth Arts Centre     

Illyria present Macbeth at Aberystwyth Arts Centre
A brave military hero... A noble and devoted subject... A popular leader respected by fellow Thanes and trusted by the King himself. Macbeth's outstanding qualities and achievements ensure that he has a bright future ahead of him. Three mad witches he meets after a battle confirm no less. Or, rather, two of them do. The third prophesies rather more than a rise in his fortunes: she states that he will become King himself. One brief, crazy suggestion sows a seed of ambition, causes the unraveling of a great man, and incites a chain of treachery, murder and destruction.

In their 23rd year Illyria is STILL the only outdoor touring theatre company to have clocked up no less than 4 international awards. Renowned all over the world for their clarity, quality and ingenuity, Illyria once again take on the greatest of Shakespeare's tragedies. The production is performed on a stage closely replicating those of 17th-century touring troupes. Expect a gripping story and the dazzling swordplay for which Illyria has an unmatched reputation.

Running time (approx): 2hrs 15mins (including 20 minute interval)

Suitable for: all ages 5+
Targeted at: all ages 10+
