In 2011, in situ: performed Macbeth at The Leper Chapel and King Lear at Wandlebury Country Park.

Macbeth by William Shakespeare

Wednesday 6 – Saturday 9 July, 2011
Time: 8pm
Venue: The Leper Chapel, Barnwell Junction, Newmarket Road, Cambridge
Tickets: £12 (£10 concessions)

‘Fair is foul and foul is fair’

A little girl is playing with a doll. On the floor is a corpse.

‘When shall we three meet again?’

Broken dolls, heads and limbs are scattered around. A battlefield? A playroom?

‘There to meet with Macbeth’.

The little girl bashes her doll’s head violently on a box. The corpse moves and starts breathing.

‘A drum! A drum! Macbeth doth come!’

A remarkable study in personal and political violence and its effect on the human soul, this intense two-hander, performed by Richard Spaul and Bella Stewart, was first seen in 2003. Claustrophobic and bloody, in the superbly eerie atmosphere of The Leper Chapel, this is the the scariest Macbeth you’re ever likely to see.

King Lear by your-pharmacies.com William Shakespeare

Wednesday June 22 – Saturday June 25, 2011
Time: 8pm
Venue: Wandlebury Country Park, Gog Magog Hills, Cambridge
Tickets: £12 (£10 concessions)

Shakespeare’s greatest tragedy. An aged king gives away his kingdom and begins a harrowing journey of loss and displacement – loss of home, self-esteem and finally sanity.

With its famous scenes of storms and wilderness and its extremes of human suffering and cruelty, King Lear was described by A.C. Bradley as being ‘too huge for the stage’.

In Wandlebury Country Park, with its Iron-Age fort, woods and meadows, in situ: have found a setting of a scale and diversity equal to this immense masterpiece.

A remarkable walk-around performance that maps its hero’s spiritual journey from civilisation to wilderness, King Lear follows the enormous success of Ovid’s Metamorphoses, performed on the same site in 2007 and 2008: ‘a weird and wonderful rite… Brilliant’ (Hunts Post)
