Lady Macbeth Uncut

Lady Macbeth Uncut

Lady Macbeth has had a bad rap down through the years- known as the 'fiend-like queen' and a byword for evil manipulation. Inspired by the real Lady Macbeth (Gruoch), Lady Macbeth Uncut seeks to redress this, telling the story from Lady Macbeth's point of view. The play sheds new light on her motivation to seize the throne and builds empathy for a powerful woman striving for control over her life. The 'Witches' get a complete reboot as well, and together they challenge the structures and prejudices that seek to hold them back.

Join us as we reclaim Lady Macbeth and celebrate women who don't conform to society's expectations and the power of female networks! Alongside the production, there will be a panel discussion, networking events for women and workshops on building a sisterhood.

Theatre Company Reviews:

Feedback from R&D on Lady Macbeth Uncut, January 2024:

“Three witches as Gentlewomen is inspired, not least because it brings them more into the human world of the play, rather than having them solely as other-worldly / mystical influences.”
