Macbeth- UK Theatre &
Schools Tour 2019/2020


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).

Autumn 2019 sees the launch of our exciting new adaptation of Shakespeare’s bloodiest plays, 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.
