Ewan Fernie, Simon Palfrey and Tom de Freston

A reading of Macbeth, Macbeth - University of Birmingham Series

Hay Festival 2016, 

Macbeth, Macbeth is by Fernie and Palfrey, with stunning original pictures by de Freston.  The tragedy is done, the tyrant Macbeth dead. The time is free. But for how long? As Macduff pursues dreams of national revival, smaller lives are seeding. In the ruins of Dunsinane, the Porter tries to keep his three young boys safe from the nightmare of history. In a nunnery deep in Birnam Wood, a girl attempts to forget what she lost in war. Flitting between them, a tortured clairvoyant shakes with the knowledge of what’s to come. An unprecedented collaboration between two leading Shakespeareans, Macbeth, Macbeth sparks a whole new world from the embers of Shakespeare’s darkest play.
