An exciting new professional Shakespeare Company for Kent announces the full cast list for its inaugural production of Macbeth. The Shakespeare Project is delighted to announce the talented team who will perform at the original Victorian Theatre at Salomons Estate, Tunbridge Wells from 5th – 24th November 2019.
Macbeth is the tale of a devastating thirst for power and its terrifying consequences, of unbridled ambition and serial murder, of supernatural forces and the psychological fallout of a world in turmoil. This contemporary production explores the dark and uncanny corners of Shakespeare’s shortest but most intense and spooky tragedy, and features a stellar line up of stage and screen talent: Peter Basham, Aamira Challenger, Tom Chapman, Vangelis Christodoulou, Louise Jameson, Ffion Jolly, Aaron Sidwell, Adam Sopp, Sarah Wadell and Gerald Bishop.
The Shakespeare Project was set up earlier this year by Artistic Director Peter Basham to bring top quality professional Shakespeare to the South East of England and following a successful fundraising campaign, its first production Macbeth is about to begin rehearsals, Peter said, “I’m delighted to have assembled such a fantastic team both on and off the stage! Macbeth is a part that every actor dreams of playing and I am tremendously excited to start rehearsals with such a talented cast. I’d like to thank Arts Council England and the Jerwood Foundation for their generous support, our Kickstarter backers, corporate sponsors and also the team at Salomons Estate who have been so supportive of the project”
Macbeth will be directed by Joseph Pitcher (RSC: ‘Matilda The Musical’) with lighting design from Mike Robertson (Olivier winner for ‘Sunday in the Park with George’), production design by Charlotte Cooke (‘Wonderland’ touring, ‘Thames Tales’ Royal Albert Hall) and sound design by Simon Arrowsmith (‘Thrill Me, ‘The Lesson’ Hope Theatre).
