Presented in English   
Paradise in the Vault, Edinburgh, Scotland, as part of the Edinburgh Festival Fringe

“An exciting new take on William Shakespeare's Macbeth. Using the original language but set in a young offenders' prison, it is bold, fast-paced, and performed entirely with a cast of three.” --description from the Fringe Programme

In the Media:
“Act Three's Macbeth was featured in the BBC's Shakespeare Lives Edinburgh #Macbethathon, which saw Lindsey Chapman take to the streets of Edinburgh to find out… just how many Macbeths she can shake a dagger at over one day of toil and trouble.” “This year's Edinburgh Fringe is having Shakespeare for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner with a typically multifarious line-up of Bardulation.”

Selected Review:
TV Bomb review (3 stars): “This bold new adaptation of the Shakespearean classic transplants the action from 11th century Scotland to a modern-day young offender’s institute, and in doing so makes the play accessible in a completely novel way.” Occasionally "clumsy" but overall the adaptation "breathes a new life into the work. Its originality and energy should satisfy existing fans of Shakespeare and perhaps even win a few doubters over to the bard’s side, as well."
