Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, will present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s infamous Scottish play, Macbeth, al fresco in the grounds of Dalkeith Country Park on the evening of Thursday 11th July.
The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare’s plays in different venues across the UK. Their creative style is certain to delight and surprise those already familiar with the play, and to call out to those who have yet to discover it.
The Fools do Shakespeare differently – a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way.
They will be imaginatively retelling Shakespeare’s infamous Scottish tale of witchcraft, prophecy, a dominant wife, and Macbeth’s unstoppable desire to become King of Scotland in a physically driven and vibrant performance. All of this accompanied by an original folk inspired soundtrack.
The performance will take place on the park’s beautiful Orangerie lawn, providing an exceptional backdrop for this special event and those attending are welcome to bring their own picnics. There will also be food and drink available to purchase at the park courtesy of Restoration Yard.
Stephen Begg, Events and Sales Manager at Dalkeith Country Park said,
“We are delighted to be welcoming The Three Inch Fools to Dalkeith Country Park. With their reputation for staging bold and vibrant productions, the performance will appeal to both adults and children, and our stunning Orangerie lawn will provide the perfect setting for a highly entertaining evening.”
Gates will open at 6pm for picnics and the play will begin at 7pm.
