The acclaimed Essential Theatre Company will tour its Shakespeare in the Vines for its lucky thirteenth year and the Wild Dog Winery leg will go ahead. Sophie Lampel, Director of the Essential Theatre Company said their choice of Macbeth was a welcomed break for audiences who love outdoor theatre and have seen all the comedies multiple times.
“Macbeth is exciting! It’s a bit dark and moody and not your usual romp through the vines but we thought our thirteenth year would be a great excuse to do something a bit different. We’ve had fabulous feedback from our audiences so far. It’s very fast-paced and energetic and we are loving each performance,” Sophie said.
Time: From 1700
