CALL FOR PROFESSIONAL ACTORS FOR OUR SUMMER #BARDINTHEYARD OPEN AIR PRODUCTION OF MACBETH
Following our three previous productions, A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2015), Romeo & Juliet (2016) and Twelfth Night (2017) Barbican Theatre (Plymouth) is producing an outdoor production of Macbeth in summer 2018.

The production is part of our commitment to creating high quality, accessible work with a commitment to supporting and developing local talent. We are particularly interested in performers with excellent physical skills. Musical ability will also be an advantage.
