★★★★★ – From the second Newbold stepped onto the stage, the atmosphere was incredible…one unfeasibly talented woman.
– Views From the Gods
Come and be pulled deep into the world of The Bard’s darkest tragedy by the unique contemporary storytelling voice of Debs Newbold.
From worthy warrior to marked man, from hero to murderer; Macbeth’s fate is set from the start in this tense and gripping re-telling of Macbeth, the third in Debs’ trilogy of re-imagined Shakespeares. Originally commissioned by the Hay Literary Festival, a sell-out at Shakespeare’s Globe and the talk of festivals both here and abroad, this is an unforgettable, shimmering work of performance storytelling that will haunt you for a very long time to come.
“The best storyteller in all the kingdoms…an incredible and rare talent.”
– Becky Burchell, Arts Producer, Bestival.
“Unmissable. Quicksilver movements and a sense of humour make her compulsive viewing and listening…”
– Hector Gilchrist, eFestivals
