Gordonstoun Youth Theatre brings a high-energy performance in this physical theatre and rock adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Crafted by Gordonstoun's Dance and Drama department, this piece amalgamates Shakespeare's prose with Biffy Clyro’s lyrics and music. Gordonstoun’s adaptation examines the complex layers of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth's marriage, and takes the audience on an exploration of power, examining how it might lead to downfall. The student cast integrate acting, movement and song, to bring this story to the stage, where it will explode in front of you.
