Macbeth

Dates:
14 - 18 June 2022
Macbeth Garden Players

Following our completely sold out performances of The Merry Wives of Windsor last summer, The Garden Players are planning an exciting new production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth. This tragic masterpiece is one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays and there will be five performances on the evenings of 14th, 15th, 16th, 17th & 18th June 2022.

We are delighted to be returning to perform once again on the superb lawns of Stubbings House near Maidenhead, a truly stunning venue which will be open for picnics from 5.30pm. Our audiences will be in the covered stand with raised seating for extra comfort and visibility.

Shakespeare’s great tragedy tells of ambition and guilt amidst a background of regicide, violence and the supernatural. When a trio of witches tells returning hero warrior Macbeth that he is fated to become King of Scotland, he attempts to forge his own destiny. Aided and encouraged by his wife, he embarks on a guilt-ridden reign of terror.

“Powerful and compelling …. gripping and absorbing on a warm summer’s evening !”

This year’s production will be directed by Louise Tait who will be directing her second production with the company following her memorable A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2012. Lou has gathered around her a particularly strong cast of well-known local actors from around the Thames Valley, many of whom are stalwarts of The Garden Players, as well as some exciting newcomers.

Since the inaugural 2009 production of Much Ado About Nothing, The Garden Players have raised in excess of £127,000 for various charities. Their aims are to stage high quality productions while maximising charitable donations and raising public awareness of the charities being supported.

The Garden Players are fortunate to be supported by Grundon and Stuart & Trish Fletcher as the main sponsors, and their thanks go to them for their invaluable contributions.
