    Macbeth by William Shakespeare / Created by Filter / Composer Tom Haines


    “Whence is that knocking? How is it with me, when every
    noise appals me?”


    Three weird sisters demarcate an area on stage. They operate a strange collection

    of electronic musical apparatus. Macbeth is invited in to play.


    Playful, kaleidoscopic and horrific, Filter’s radical version of Macbeth fuses Shakespeare’s

    corrosive, psychological thriller about ambition, power, witchcraft and sanity with innovative

    sound and music to take you on a strange, funny and scintillating journey to the epicentre

    of the “heat-oppressed brain”.


    Filter’s irreverent and contemporary recreations of the classics – Caucasian Chalk Circle,

    Three Sisters, Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream have gone down a storm in

    the UK and the World in the past few years.

    “This is a brave, adventurous Macbeth. It’s also, more importantly, a satisfying one. Filter’s clever use of sound
    and vision conjure up a dank, paranoid world where the
    tragic effects of one couple’s over-vaulting ambition
    are all too clear… 
    Oliver Dimsdale is captivating…
    Poppy Miller also excels as Lady Macbeth”

    “It’s an entirely fresh approach…
    a venerable and absorbing performance"
    Fix Magazine  FULL REVIEW



    “Poppy Miller was uniquely and suitably uptight,
    controlling and driven: 
    a perfect Lady Macbeth.”
