Macbeth 2014


Macbeth – adapted by Paul Dunn

After an encounter with 3 witches, Macbeth is driven to desperate acts in order to fulfil the prophecy they made him. Spurred on by his Wife, Macbeth’s story unfolds in this promenade performance which will take place all around the audience, and throughout the spectacular terrain of Roker Park. This is dark and dramatic retelling of a Shakespearian classic as you’ve never seen it before.

This show took place 19th 20th and 21st June 2014 with a 7pm start time and with Support from the Cultural Spring and the Friends of Roker Park

Feedback from our audience members:

“Was extremely impressed by the event and cast…”

“…The production was seamless. The actors were excellent and this represented an excellent idea well executed by all concerned.”

“It’s fantastic to at last see something like this happening in Sunderland the Arts Council need to sit up and take notice of this and you should most definitely have NPO status !”

“Massive congratulations on a wonderful performance on Macbeth to everyone involved. You had me hooked at the Tempest and I’m really looking forward to future performances.”

“Production and cast were amazing. Performance venue was perfect and used effectively.”

“There were several children in attendance which seems a good starting point for them to enjoy the arts.If ticketing was sole funding aspect then this could be a negative to their attendance”

“The long round of applause was truly deserved. If we’d been sitting down we would have given a standing ovation. You guys work harder than if it was a west end production!!”

“Having seen Theatre Space NE perform The Tempest in Barnes Park last year I was excited to hear about the plays in the parks returning this year. It is something totally different, unique and entertaining. The cast all do a fine job and the guides do a good job of keeping a large crowd together. Now I cannot wait to see As You Like It in August. I think it is a great service they deliver: bringing culture and English literary heritage to life in public for all to see. It is wonderful that over 400 years after the plays were written, people of all ages from children to the elderly gathered to watch Shakespeare. Long may it continue.”
