Stafford Festival Shakespeare - Macbeth

28 June - 14 July 2018
Stafford Gatehouse Theatre together with Freedom Leisure are pleased to present the Stafford Festival Shakespeare 2018 production of The Bard's horrific tragedy, Macbeth.

Originally set in the '11th Century', Macbeth lends itself perfectly to the backdrop of Stafford Castle, and the site grounds will provide a truly unique opportunity for theatre goers to experience the essence of the text. There has been a rich history at the site of Stafford Castle since 913, and its changing fortunes during the Saxon and Medieval periods echo the tumultuous political history of Shakespeare's medieval Scotland.
