Macbeth & George's Marvellous Medicine
& Robin Hood
by William Shakespeare and Roald Dahl
performed by well-known and well-loved British open-air theatre company ILLYRIA
Three witches foresee a spectacular rise in Macbeth' fortunes culminating in the throne of Scotland itself. As their prophecies begin to become true, Macbeth realises that only one thing stands between him and the crown and that is murder!! Illyria has a deservedly unparalleled reputation for Jacobean authenticity, clarity and pace and perform Shakespeare’s thrilling tale on their own unique Globe-style stage.
GEORGE'S MARVELLOUS MEDICINE
George Kranky is eight years old and wondering what sort of misschief he might get into.
George's Grandma is a grizzly old grouch and Gerorge wants to teach her a lesson... and when Grandma has finished George's Marvellous Medicine she'll have something to grumble about. For a fourth time Illyria has been able to secure the rights to perform one again a play by Roald Dahl, adapted for the stage by David Wood. Crowds went wild (and upside down...) when Dahl's James and the Giant Peach, Fantastic Mr Fox and The Twits were performed in 2010, 2011 and 2012! A forebode of what is to come.
On the day of his marriage to Marian Fitzwater, Robert Fitzrooth, Earl of Huntingdon, is betrayed by his closest friend the Sheriff of Nottingham and arrested for disrupting the peace. But he evades capture and hides out in Sherwood Foresr with a band of outlaws under the assumed name of Robin Hood. (adapted from the original scripts by Illyria's Artistic Director Oliver Gray)
