Madcap Macbeth Coming To Liverpool

ODDSOCKS Productions are back in town with an exciting new look at one of Shakespeare’s classics. Macbeth will take to the stage in Liverpool with a hearty dosage of Oddsocks inimitable comedy. Oddsocks Productions was set up 26 years ago by Andy Barrow and Elli Mackenzie and is a critically acclaimed nationally touring theatre company. Whether it’s a live on-stage car chase (Romeo and Juliet, 2009) or the fairy-king as an avatar superhero (A Midsummer Night’s Dream, 2014) Oddsocks have no boundaries when it comes to creating memorable and unique comedy productions of the classics. On the road during summer 2016 is a rock n’ roll production of Macbeth, which promises to be nothing short of Oddsocks’ usual mayhem and anarchy. Shakespeare’s story of ambition turned bad is brought hilariously to life alongside a soundtrack of classic songs. Oddsocks are passionate about performing Shakespeare with energy and silliness and Macbeth will be no exception. Forget what you know about Shakespeare’s tragedy and expect the unexpected. This is “Shakespeare for today. Seriously silly Shakespeare” says Oddsocks Artistic Director Andy Barrow. Andy continues by describing their unique style of performances: “Oddsocks is a theatrical experience for everyone. Highly energetic, full of life and plenty of laughs! It’s Shakespeare, but not as you know it!” Alongside their touring theatre work, Oddsocks also run their Open Doors scheme which engages families and local charities with theatre, aiming to inspire, engage and entertain those who may normally be able to access theatre. Want to see what all the fuss is about? Oddsocks’ Macbeth plays at St James Gardens behind the Anglican Cathedral on 7 July at 7pm Tickets from www.oddsocks.co.uk or tel: 01332 258328
