Downpour Theatre Company presents Macbeth

October 30 and 31

7.30pm

Castle School

£12/£10 concessions

A THORNBURY-based theatre company is bringing one of Shakespeare's greatest plays to the town this month.

Earlier this year Downpour Theatre Company staged an outdoor production of The Comedy of Errors at Thornbury Castle.

This time the company has turned to the dark plotting of Macbeth, which will be performed at Castle School on October 30 and 31 at 7.30pm.

Set in a bleak, dystopian land, Macbeth paints a nightmarish picture of what can happen when dark elemental forces and mortal politicking corrupt the mind with ambition and greed.

A company spokesperson said: "Conveyed using poetry of unsurpassed beauty and power, this 400 year old dark psychological Shakespearean thriller is as completely enthralling today as the day it was written."

Tickets cost £12 for adults and £10 concessions, and are available from website Ticketsource.
