Shakespeare under the Stars: Macbeth
Murder and treachery in the corporate boardroom.
Constellation Productions pulls together an all-female cast in this modern retelling of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. And there is nothing normal about it. Do not expect to be seated facing a stage. This is a promenade and immersive production: moving from scene-to-scene, finding random corners of action and corridors of madness.
Preserving the Shakespearean English, but set in present-day UAE, you will have the chance to experience Shakespeare in a whole new way. Elements of Arabic (and many other languages) appear in this insanity-filled performance.
General Admission: AED 150
Student discount of 25% with Student ID
