“Something wicked this way comes…”

Three gnarly fortune tellers live amongst the rats in an old junk yard, apart from decent society. Eager to teach the selfish world of man a lesson, they prepare a fortune reading that will destroy a throne and everything around it.

In this demented retelling of Shakespeare’s violent and thrilling classic, 6FootStories invite you to witness their wayward witches go about plotting the fall of Macbeth, rehearsing what they hope will be the bloody and catastrophic aftermath of their prophecy.

“Fair is foul and foul is fair…”

Performed by three actors in an immersive set made entirely of recycled objects, this is Macbeth as you’ve never seen it before. The deranged cast will all play Macbeth, and his wife, and all the other major characters, swapping roles like a gory game of pass the parcel.

6FootStories return to The Hope Theatre after their run of SOFTEN THE GREY in January 2015.

★★★★★ “The chemistry between the actors is superb… impeccable storytelling” Remotegoat on SOFTEN THE GREY

★★★★ “Sinister and charming… a real delight to witness.” Theatre Tourist on SOFTEN THE GREY

her aching heart

29 Nov - 23 Dec 2016

GOTHIC SEASON
Grab a bonnet, lace up your corset, and prepare to swoon, as this tongue-in-cheek musical whirlwind parodies the best in bodice-ripping romance replete with murder, elopement and heaving bosoms a-plenty as two heartbroken women jump between the pages of the same sapphic paperback – and play all the parts between them!

Grimy Jazz Age masterpiece THE WILD PARTY is the story of vaudeville dancer Queenie and her jealous lover Burrs, and the final fatal party they throw in their seedy apartment.
