Fast Intent Presents
Shakespeare’s most exciting play as it was meant to be experienced.
“Let not light see my black and deep desires”
For two weeks this January Fast Intent will convert the atmospheric Smock Alley Boys’ School into a traditional Playhouse - a theatre that Shakespeare himself would have recognised. In this pulsating indoor cauldron, we will present one of his greatest and most thrilling plays, the brilliantly bloody Macbeth.
Taking inspiration from original staging practices we will create an engaging, heart-pounding show that will give audiences the chance to experience the play in the spirit it was first performed. We are offering fast pace, high drama, intense thrills and some of Shakespeare’s most beautiful language in a production that will appeal to Gallants and Groundlings alike.
Returning victorious from battle, Macbeth is given a glimpse of a glorious future. Unable to wait, and driven on by his loyal and loving wife, he looks for the quickest way to achieve his dreams. But in so doing he unleashes a world of nightmares. As the shadows gather and darkness falls, Macbeth surges towards its breathtaking conclusion. This electrifying new production will bring the audience right into the heart of the action.
