Macbeth in Heidelberg (2014)

To mark the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, London's Butterfly Theatre Company are bringing the bard's darkest play to the darkest caverns of Heidelberg: the Tiefburg in Handschuhsheim. Famed for their intensive, sight-specific productions, Butterfly invite you to follow the three wird sisters on a one-hour tour around the grounds and castel to experience the foul and fair going-on of the Scottish Play at first hand with the action unfolding all around you. A fresh and visceral rendering of Shakespeare that will enthrall theatre enthusiasts and first-time viewers alike.
