Oddsocks Productions are returning to add their inimitable comedy to one of Shakespeare’s classics. Macbeth will take to the beautiful surroundings of Brighton Open Air Theatre on Thurs 30 June – Fri 1 July.
Set up 26 years ago by Andy Barrow and Elli Mackenzie, Oddsocks Productions are a critically acclaimed nationally touring theatre company. They take classic texts and create bold, challenging, innovative and interactive theatre to be enjoyed by everyone. Whether it’s a live on-stage car chase for ‘Romeo and Juliet’ or the fairy-king as an avatar superhero in ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’, the company have no boundaries when it comes to creating memorable and unique comedy productions of the classics.
Now they’re touring with a rock n’ roll production of ‘Macbeth’, which promises to be packed with their usual mayhem and anarchy. Shakespeare’s story of ambition turned bad is brought hilariously to life alongside a soundtrack of classic songs. Oddsocks are passionate about performing Shakespeare with energy and silliness, and Macbeth will be no exception. Forget what you know about Shakespeare’s tragedy and expect the unexpected!
One of Shakespeare’s most popular tragedies, Macbeth tells the story of greed, witchcraft, murder and mayhem. Although the comedy might not leap off the page, Oddsocks will use their 26 years of experience to provide laughs aplenty!
