Join Andy and Danny for the most outrageous retelling (or should we say demolishing) of Shakespeare's Macbeth.

Andy Griffiths’ JUST MACBETH! is a really silly version of Shakespeare’s great big gory tragedy starring Andy, Lisa, Danny and Jen from his Just! series of books. And when we say really silly, we mean really, really silly as it’s performed by six funny but tragic actors and a garden gnome and has witches and Wizz Fizz and ghosts and girl germs and…

The Very Popular Theatre Company’s production of JUST MACBETH! re-envisions the themes of Macbeth through the eyes of Andy Griffiths’ much loved characters. This hilarious and irreverent take on one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays will have the whole family in stitches!

JUST MACBETH! enjoyed very successful seasons in Sydney and Melbourne in 2008 and now comes to Newcastle for the very first time.

"It's hard to conceive a more appropriate production through which to introduce children to theatre, let alone Shakespeare."
