You've never seen 'Macbeth like this before! Directed by Georgiana Neilson-Toy
The concept was inspired by a poppy, a beautiful bright 'fair' red flame of a flower with the power to relieve pain or induce 'foul' addiction, as Shakespeare wrote "Fair is foul and foul is fair". Opium use began around 3,400 B.C. in lower Mesopotamia (Southwest Asia) and was referred to by the Sumerians as Hul Gil; "joy plant." Here begins 'Macbeth's' journey, "... have we eaten on the insane root that takes the reason prisoner?"
After the success of the 2019 show at Merlin Theatre, Frome. Georgiana is applying for Funding for a 2022 tour, so watch this space...
