“I get a chainsaw hand – what more could an actor want?” - Finn Caulfield, who plays Macbeth
About the show
Macbeth Re-Arisen by David Mence “Macbeth canst ne’er be slain by man nor sword, for he hast now become an Undead Lord.” On a Highland crag, Macbeth re-emerges to take Scotland, this time with a chainsaw hand and a zombie army. Part Shakespeare, part Evil Dead, Macbeth Re-Arisen is the schlock-horror, black-comedy sequel to Macbeth.
On a Highland crag, thanks to some supernatural witchy-magic, Macbeth re-emerges to take Scotland, this time with a chainsaw hand and a zombie army.
Will the Witches’ prophecy come true?
All your favourite characters come back to life, including Lady Macbeth, whilst others meet a grisly end. Full of the big moral questions about power and corruption: who is fit to govern Scotland, was it all Lady Mac’s fault, is Macbeth a tragic hero? Will Fleance flee? Will Banquo rule? And what of Birnam Wood… A moral fable told in iambic pentameter with some truly anachronistic moments. If you like Evil Dead, zombies, and Shakespeare this one’s for you.
