Och aye the no! Oddsocks are off to bonny Scotland and they're taking no prisoners. The company are in Portsmouth at the Royal Marines Museum on Sunday 3rd July with ‘Macbeth’ one of Shakespeare's bloodiest of plays. Outdoors, on Oddsocks’ medieval pageant wagon is the perfect place to see the Scots Play, as the play gets darker and the night draws in and the champagne corks pop gently in the background!.
Never fear, this will be no ordinary Macbeth, Shakespeare's darkest of dark tragedies is given the Oddsocks treatment and as Oddsocks can make a comedy out of anything, be prepared for spine tingling, eye popping, rib tickling hilarity - lots of witches! Lots of laughs!.
The company have 20 years experience delighting audiences with their inspired approach to Shakespeare's plays and their trademark family friendly, madcap, slapstick style. Expect this battle against good and evil to be a physically exciting spectacle based on the bard's original text of course, complete with power hungry rulers, mad wives, sword fights, wandering stilted witches, walking trees, blood, wigs, music, dancing and lots of audience participation.
Oddsocks Director, Andy Barrow, last seen as a gloriously funny Bottom, will be in the lead with company regulars Bethan Nash (pregnant Ophelia in the winter show), Andy McGillan (a magnificently 'invisible’ Oberon in last years 'Dream') and Kevin Kemp (a brooding Hamlet) aiding in the mischief. Oddsocks also welcome newcomer Kathryn Levell to their motley crew as Lady Macbeth.
Join the 1000s of Oddsocks fans who enjoy a great night out with this hilarious company who bring a feel good buzz to every classic they perform
