​Horncastle Young Stagers are hard at work rehearsing for their upcoming production of Macbeth. This innovative adaptation of “The Scottish Play” from BBC Teach is specially written for young performers by Neil Richards.

Shakespeare’s tragic tale of murder, mystery and witchcraft is vividly brought to life – capturing all the drama, dastardly deeds and intrigue - interweaving it with original songs.
