Macbeth

William Shakespeare

When Macbeth receives a prophecy that he shall be king, he stops at nothing to see it come to fruition. Leaving behind him a murderous, blood-soaked trail, Macbeth forces his way to the crown. Paranoia and guilt close in as he and Lady Macbeth swear to kill all who could stand in their way.

This production sets William Shakespeare's darkest tragedy against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic Scotland.

The ADC Theatre is Britain's oldest University playhouse, today administered and maintained by the University of Cambridge. Plays have been presented on the site since 1855, when the Cambridge University Amateur Dramatic Club (CUADC) was founded, and the society met and performed in the back room of the Hoop Inn, which stood almost exactly where the ADC Theatre stands today.  Today, the ADC Theatre is the centre of University drama in Cambridge, run almost entirely by students with no Faculty involvement.
