Merely Theatre 


Tuesday, 25 September, 2018
Matcham Auditorium, Theatre Royal Wakefield

Returning for their third year!

Merely Theatre create energetic, crystal clear Shakespeare productions. Audiences follow the story better than ever and feel actively involved. Inventive and relentless, their work is informed by years of honing their principles in rep. The result is a dynamic cast of actors telling these amazing stories through sheer imaginary force.

In Macbeth, A couple’s ambition consumes the kingdom of Scotland. A king’s mind is poisoned by prophecy, power, and paranoia. A nation is led to the slaughter. To protect their world, those who lose the most must rise the highest.

‘What Shakespeare could and should be in this modern generation. Wonderful, high energy and delightfully easy to understand’
Everything Theatre (on Henry V)

‘A triumph of resourcefulness and invention… this company has the theatre resonating irreverently with life’
Eastbourne Herald (on A Midsummer Night’s Dream)
