Creative re-imagining of Macbeth comes to Lyceum Theatre Oldham

A CREATIVE re-imagining of Shakespeare’s classic play ‘Macbeth’ is coming to the Lyceum Theatre Oldham in June.

The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society are a group of unpredictable amateurs created by playwrights David McGillivray and Walter Zerlin Jnr.

Rehersals for Macbeth

They have re-imagined a number of classic plays within plays, each with hilarious comic effect. Their version of Macbeth is no exception.

Their performance includes witches on crutches, a stand-in cross-dressing Lady Macbeth and a set that just won’t keep still.

With a downtrodden Director and the chance to go through to the next stage of a competition, the frenetic, earnest performers put their all into Shakespeare.

Directed by Lyceum Theatre Oldham’s Management Team Chair Phil McCarthy, this is a great way to end the season.

If you always thought Shakespeare was boring at school, this will certainly change your mind.

Lyceum Theatre Oldham presents The Farndale Avenue Housing Estate Townswomen’s Guild Dramatic Society’s production Of ‘Macbeth’ on June 2-10 at 7.30pm (not Sunday 4 June).

All tickets cost £8 and are available by calling the Box Office on 0161 627 1032 or book online
