THE Lord Chamberlain’s Men will be reviving the traditions of Elizabethan theatre at King’s Ely on Tuesday (22) with their all male, open-air production of Shakespeare’s devastating and gripping thriller, Macbeth.

The production offers audiences outside of London the perfect opportunity to see one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays performed to the very highest standards, in the way the Bard first envisioned them: with an all-male cast, traditional costume and Elizabethan song and dance.

King’s Ely is one of the more rural venues on the tour, which only visits the UK’s most beautiful and historic venues.

Mark Puddle, founder and creative director of The Lord Chamberlain’s Men said: “Macbeth has everything; a tragic love story, a lust for power and a drunken porter as well as fights, ghosts and plenty of blood. The contrast of a beautiful summer’s evening and Macbeth’s tragic tale is a perfect fit.’

The open-air production takes place at the Priory Garden at King’s Ely at 7.30pm on Tuesday 22nd May. Tickets cost £15 for Adults and £12 for Concessions.

Bring along a picnic, sit back and relax… but beware witches, traitors and murderers!
