Hail, King that shalt be.

Directed by Ng Choon Ping

Designed by Choy-Ping Clarke-Ng 

Murders, witches and betrayal: Shakespeare’s dark tale of the corrosive nature of ambition.

When confronted by the prophecy, Macbeth is terrified that the witches are merely seeing what might already be festering in his heart.

As he and his wife embark upon their murderous path for the crown, we see what was once a golden couple kill their own humanity in the quest for power.

Age guidance 12+

As soon as I visited the School, I fell in love with the place. Perhaps it sounds a bit irrational, but sometimes you get a vibe - and you just know! BOVTS gave me all the tools I needed to prepare for a career as an actor. Sahir Mehta, MA Professional Acting, 2018
