Mr and Mrs Macbeth of Heathcote Valley Road
The Court Theatre,  Christchurch
Fri 17th May - Sat 22nd June

Jo and Tom Macbeth are experienced professional actors who have a reputation as Shakespearean specialists. It is the opening night of a production of Macbeth, 30 minutes before curtain up. In the dressing room, something major has happened. Not great timing.

Crisp, sharp dialogue, revelations and discoveries on both sides provide moments of emotion, accusations and crackling synergy. With a crisis just before the interval, disaster seems imminent. The second half is filled with every actor's nightmare - being in the wrong play at the wrong time, especially when Taika Waititi is in the house casting for his Amazon-funded film version of the Shakespearian tragedy.

Enjoy a rollercoaster ride of comedy, drama, poignancy and explosive conflict, as these two-stage dynamos reveal the highs and lows of partnerships, on and off the stage. Mr & Mrs Macbeth of Heathcote Valley Road will appeal to all, including people who hated Shakespeare at school.



At the heart of The Professional Theatre Company is an annual programme of entertaining, moving and thought-provoking productions that will be showcased at the treasured Theatre Royal as well as various other venues across New Zealand. Our repertoire consists of an array of performances, including newly commissioned works by talented New Zealand playwrights, beloved classics, and stories that reflect our place, our whānau, our challenges and our joys. We want everyone in our community to feel they belong to something that is truly ‘ours’.
