Macbeth- UK Theatre &
Schools Tour


By William Shakespeare (Adapted by Ryan Philpott)

“The DTC are absolutely amazing!” Quinn Williams Year 7, Westcliff High School for Boys.

“Please sir, can we have some more DTC!” Gerald Dickens (great-great grandson of Charles Dickens).

Since the Autumn of 2019 we have been touring this 3 actor adaptation of Shakespeare’s bloodiest play, Macbeth. This Arts Council England funded project brings the Bard’s complex text to life through a high quality, digestible 60-minute performance for all abilities. Whilst staying true to the original text, the DTC’s Macbeth present the Porter as narrator to ensure all audience members understand the intricate plot & engage with the characters. With themes of ambition, power and revenge, this dynamic & accessible production captivates to the bitter end.

DTC Brings Macbeth To Your School

We charge £575 per PERFORMANCE or £850 for TWO PERFORMANCES on the same day. INCLUDES post performance Q & A session upon request.

To book a DTC PERFORMANCE AT YOUR SCHOOL please email info@dickenstheatrecompany.com or call 07990587934.
