In the City, success is all and ruthless ambition is rewarded.
The only problem is, how do you control it before it consumes you and your family? This is London, October 1987, Black Monday. This is a tale of greed, betrayal and murder. This is Macbeth.
Award-winning theatre company Proteus present a highly physical re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth as a corporate thriller which explores race, class and identity, set against the background of the ‘greed is good’ corporate landscape of 1980s Britain. The production also interrogates how Thatcher’s government created the political and economic landscapes of today -legitimising behemoth corporations to act above the law – like the feuding Thanes of Macbeth’s Scotland. This new production features movement from George Mann of Theatre Ad Infinitum set to a soundtrack of 80s hits and new classics.
This performance will also include a post-show Q&A session with the Proteus Company.
