Written by John Christopher-Wood
Directed by Julie Sadler

Tired of their Friday night ritual of playing Trivial Pursuit, Elsie and Norm decide to have a bit of a bash at culture by staging a production of Macbeth in their living-room. After a spot of judicious re-writing by Norm to make the play snappier and leaving out, as he puts it, “the boring bits”, undaunted by the large cast, Elsie and Norm set out to act “one of the greatest pieces of literature what has ever been written in the English language”, playing all the characters between them. The hilarious results set Shakespeare spinning in his grave!
If you find Shakespeare a little too drawn out with some incomprehensible language, then this could be the play for you.

No admission once the performance has started.
