A contemporary take on Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy Macbeth is to feature on stage at the Auden Theatre.

Proteus Theatre's retelling of 'the Scottish play' is a corporate thriller set in London during the stock market crash of 1987.

Director Mary Swan said: "It's really exciting to be able to bring our interpretation of Macbeth to a brand new audience on this tour; with an almost completely new, young cast of incredibly talented actors of colour.

"Shakespeare's tragedy of a man corrupted by a lust for power, leading him to believe he can act above the law, has never been so timely. The show is even more fast-paced and physical than before, and with the 80s revival in full swing, this will be a truly unique take on the play."

The production joins the 'greed is good' corporate landscape where success is all and ruthless ambition is rewarded.

The performance takes place on November 6 at 7.30m, visit audentheatre.com for tickets.
