You bring your chairs* and refreshments, whilst we'll supply the laughs this summer at the return of the enormously popular Rep at the Commandery. Come and join us for our hilarious production of Elsie & Norm's Macbeth!

Elsie and Norm have decided to have a bit of a bash at culture by staging their own production of Macbeth. After a spot of judicious re-writing by Norm to make it snappier and more punchy, and 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!
