Macbeth

A musical brew of laughter and witchcraft!

Oddsocks are delighted to be breathing new life into Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet by giving it a musical Mods & Rockers twist! There’s Nowhere to Run To for the Capulets and Montagues as violent confrontation stalks every meeting, even Down in the Tube Station at Midnight. Meanwhile, Juliet’s Nurse is looking forward to a good old Twist and Shout at the Capulet party, which Romeo’s mates are planning to gatecrash. Romeo has doubts about going to the Capulet Nite Klub but that is where he meets his Juliet, and It Must Be Love. Maybe, just maybe, The Power of Love will end the families’ violent feud.

“A musical brew of laughter and witchcraft!”

Shakespeare’s dramatic story of ambition turned bad is brought vividly to life in Oddsocks’ hilarious Steampunk musical adaptation. The ruling monarch Duncan holds sway with a caring, iron fist. His chief warlords Macbeth and Banquo return triumphantly from the battlefield – and discover three weird sisters who want to Put A Spell On You and soon they are on course for promotions. Awaiting his return is Macbeth’s ambitious wife who can feel success coming In The Air Tonight. Although Macbeth needs convincing she releases the devil within him and soon there’s blood on his hands. Suspicions are roused about Macbeth’s two- faced False Love and Banquo thinks he’s a a scummy man because it changes When The Sun Goes Down round here. Pretty soon Macbeth’s feeling Bad To The Bone and he finds a murderer to do his dirty work who tells him there’s Nothing Sweet About Me. But doubts start to creep in and Macbeth believes there’s a Ghost in my House and Witchcraft starts to take over. Lady Macbeth is slipping into a Mad World and at last, hero Macduff steps up to take on Macbeth, with the audience’s help. The final dramatic battle sees Macbeth despatched like a Bat Out Of Hell and Scotland is safe again.
