ABILITIES

This is a very physical and bloody adaption of Macbeth.  It is based on Fred and Rose West but only the words of Shakespeare are spoken.

Given the above it is vital to have experience and ability to speak in Shakespeare’s verse.

Only hard working team players wanted – this production is sufficiently dangerous that bloated bardic, or other, egos need not apply.

(An ability, enthusiasm and licence to drive a van would be helpful)
