Allow the strangers your hand and follow as they lead you far below the streets of London into the tunnels and cells of Middlesex Prison. There begin your passage – a nightmarish journey into the mind of one of literature’s greatest serial killers.
This ambitious new production of Macbeth sees Shakespeare’s bloody tragedy mounted by an all-male cast that breathe life into the Scottish King and the three weird sisters that guide him on his path of self-destruction.
Locked away from daylight within a supposedly haunted labyrinth, watch Macbeth as he struggles through delusions and paranoia in this relic of Victorian punishment, bricks built one upon the other with a single purpose, preventing the demons inside from being unleashed.
A prison, a workhouse and a system of underground cells; this is the House of Detention Clerkenwell.
From the award winning company behind The Tartuffe, The Trial, Lorca is Dead, Atrium, Quasimodo and The Boy James, Belt Up Theatre returns to London with the language of Shakespeare, one of the greatest stories ever told and a terrifying new vision…
‘A clever, claustrophobic hour of psychological horror’ Time Out on Quasimodo
‘It doesn’t so much inhabit the venue as haunt it, as if what you are witnessing is a terrifying vision conjured from your own warped imagination.’ The Guardian on The Trial
