Synopsis

Macbeth The Film: A One Day Only Screening.


Brilliant young general Macbeth pulls off a glorious victory in battle before returning to an indolent court where honours are dispensed by whim. Spurred on by prophesying drifters and am ambitious wife, Macbeth sets his sights on the throne.


Kit Monkman’s reimagining offers an opportunity to experience Macbeth as never before; in this exclusive showing, starring Mark Rowley, see Shakespeare’s classic tragedy shot entirely on green screen.


Staying true to Shakespeare’s play, yet exploiting the capabilities of this filming method, this excit-ing adaptation brings the authentic, traditional work of the Bard into the modern age.


Set around a multi-tiered globe this one-off cinematic event, offers an immersive experience as the camera pans and tracks Macbeth’s journey in this compelling interpretation.


There will be a 15 minute talk before by Dr. Peter Kirwan who is Associate Professor in Early Modern Drama at the University of Nottingham. His research covers the historical and contemporary divisions between Shakespeare and not-Shakespeare in print history, theatre history, contemporary performance and film. He has published Shakespeare and the Idea of Apocrypha (2015) and is currently working on a book on the theatre company Cheek by Jowl, as well as editions of Dr Faustus and Pericles. In his introduction, Peter will discuss the film’s interpretive and cinematic choices, and suggest some key things to look for in the film itself.


There will also be fifteen minutes of footage documenting ‘The Making Of Macbeth: The Film’ before the performance.
