Open-Air Theatre: MacHamLearGo to Nottingham City Museums
Thursday 3 August | Gates 6pm, show 7pm
Take part in a unique experiment that will answer the question keeping literary scholars up at night… which play is the best the Bard has to offer? Help us to decide by being part of an exciting, new theatre competition. In Round One, we’ll be pitting Macbeth, Hamlet, and King Lear against each other, as some of the finest actors (that we can afford!) make their case for why their tragedy should be performed that evening, to win a place in the next round of the competition.
MacHamLear is a farcical piece of new writing from award-winning playwright Michael Davies that shamelessly exploits the genius of England’s most celebrated writer. Grab your copy of the Complete Works, a chair/blanket, weather appropriate gear, and a few nibbles, and prepare to be tickled pink as the three iconic plays are performed with passion, pep, and punch.
Children (5-16)/NUS students: £11
Family (2 adults, 2 children): £50
Gates open one hour before the performance starts. Please bring rugs or low-back seating and wear comfortable clothing and footwear. Performances will go ahead in all but the worst weather.
