Macbeth and Romeo & Juliet: A Shakespeare Double Bill

Two of Shakespeare’s Greatest Tragedies transformed into outrageous, fall-on-the-floor comedies.

Macbeth in 40 minutes? Romeo & Juliet in 40 minutes? Both shows performed by only 4 actors in one evening!

440 Theatre are back with their ‘Double Bill’ for 2023. Not to be missed! You might have seen Shakespeare before but never like this! Four Forty have been delighting audiences up and down the country with its fast-paced, in-your-face, hysterically funny productions. Offering an alternative take on some of the world’s most famous plays, their inimitable style and charisma has set them apart as one of the most hungry and playfully ambitious travelling troupes!

Act One sees the 440 team wrestle with a side-splitting Macbeth (Yes, a comedy!) followed by an even more outrageous Romeo & Juliet in Act Two. 440 Theatre is 4 actors delivering exciting, engaging and energetic pieces of theatre in 40 minutes! Performing in spaces great and small, their work is playful but never lacks focus.

Stripping the narrative to its core we keep the essence of Shakespeare’s words alive to help his magnificent stories shine at the heart of our shows. Anarchy is balanced with a safe and family-friendly environment that keeps our audiences relaxed, engaged and safe in the knowledge that they’re in good hands!
