‘If good, why do I yield to that suggestion
Whose horrid image doth unfix my hair
And make my seated heart knock at my ribs,
Against the use of nature? Present fears
Are less than horrible imaginings’

My aim with this production is to make the audience’s seated hearts knock at their ribs with a production full of horrid images and horrible imaginings. I would very much like you to join me in the conjuring of this dark and bloody tale, in what I hope will be a thrilling and exciting process.

I am looking for a strong troupe of versatile players who can bring the text to life and are willing to be experimental and explorative in the rehearsal room. You may be called on to double a role or play a character of the opposite gender, so range and versatility are key.

For the audition I would like to you pick from a selection of audition pieces to perform. A link to download these speeches can be found on the auditions page of our website:

YOU DO NOT NEED TO LEARN YOUR SPEECH. I will be looking for an understanding of the language, an ability to capture the light and shade of the text and perform with a range of expression; so select the speech you like the best.

I will see each person individually, so please arrange an audition slot using the google sheet below. If you are unable to complete the sheet please contact me to arrange your audition slot.


For the recalls you will be tried for named parts. I am not fixed on age or, with the exception of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, gender, in casting the play.

If you need any further information please do not hesitate to contact me.
