'Stars hide your fires: Let not light see my black and deep desires'

Macbeth is one of Shakespeare's most famous tragedies charting the bloody rise and tragic downfall of the brave warrior Macbeth.

It is Shakespeare's only thriller.

At times it is a bloodbath.

A story of power, ambition and ultimately loss.

Following a prophecy by three witches who predict Macbeth will become King; Macbeth, who is consumed by ambition, murders his way to the throne.

Devil You Know Theatre company's thrilling production of Macbeth staged exclusively at the Bussey Building will be set in a dystopian world 1000 years from now.

Civilisation and technology has all but been obliterated by nuclear apocalypse and life on this earth has restarted but society and humanity have reverted.

It is a brutal landscape filled wth the skeletal reminisce of the civilisation that has been long been lost.

The people of this world have made forts and forged weapons from what was left.

It's a violent and brutal world where every man and every clan must fight for what they have.

A perfect setting for one of Shakespeare's most, thrilling, violent and chillingly evil plays.
