A twist on Shakespeare’s classic Macbeth is the latest production by a theatre company which brings the classics to city venues.
The tragedy – about a nobleman’s scheming to be crowned King of Scotland – will be held by Creation Theatre in the gardens of Lady Margaret Hall.
As Britain marks 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War, it is set in a hospital where the cast are recovering officers.
The production is set shortly after the end of the war, in a sanatorium not far from the Western Front.
The show will run from August 1 to September 13 at the Norham Gardens by the company, which has held shows at Headington Hill Park, the Cowley Mini plant and Oxford Castle.
Director Jonathan Holloway said: “It is a multi-layered event with lots of thrills and spills.”
