Anərkē Shakespeare presents The Tragedy of Macbeth.
Anərkē Shakespeare’s candlelit production of Macbeth will be performed in St Leonard’s Church, Shoreditch on 13 and 14 March.
Anərkē Shakespeare brings you a ghostly rendition of Macbeth rising from the bones of Shakespeare and Burbage, the watchful, haunting eyes of the first and probably greatest Macbeth, and the writer who created him. Step into the Rembrandt painting of this candlelit production, as shadows flicker, question the dream and nightmare of ambition, dark desires, the supernatural, and the cost of love. We are all walking shadows, poor players that strut and fret our hour upon the stage… so come, let us make the sound and fury … together.
About Anərkē Shakespeare
Anərkē Shakespeare is an innovative theatre company that creates fast-paced productions, combining scholarship and creative practice inspired by the working conditions in which Shakespeare conceived his plays. Shakespeare’s “myriad minded” texts are brought to life by a diverse, gender-blind, actor-led ensemble, in an intensively short rehearsal period, without a director.
Transforming the way theatre is created and shared.
Praise for Anərkē Shakespeare;

“The production made questions of ethnicity completely irrelevant … benefited hugely from the experience and authority of its multiracial cast.” - Professor Tony Howard, University of Warwick
“A feast of fine acting, and a revelatory X-ray of the structure of the play.“ - Professor Richard Wilson, Kingston University
