Mon 1 Jan 0001 - Wed 9 Jun 2021, Octagon Outdoor: Yeovil Country Park
The Lord Chamberlain’s Men invite you to join them this summer in Yeovil's Country Park, for the breathless and brilliant tragedy, Macbeth.
Emerging victorious and decorated in war Macbeth receives a thrilling pronouncement from three weird sisters who prophesy he will one day be King of Scotland. Overcome by ambition and driven on by his powerful wife, Macbeth murders the King and sets in motion a terrible sequence of events from which there is no turning back.
The Lord Chamberlain's Men are the UK’s premier all male theatre company - with direct links to the history of William Shakespeare.
A play of supernatural magic, vaulting ambition and an examination of the dreadful consequences of the insatiable lust for power.
This performance will be taking place in Yeovil Country Park, directly behind The Octagon Theatre.
