VOTE MACBETH!

VOTE MACBETH!

Clydebuilt Theatre Company's debut production will be Vote Macbeth! at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Vote Macbeth! is a new musical, based on the Shakespeare play and set during a modern day presidential campaign. Captain Macbeth has just been named the new Vice-President, but he and Lady Macbeth want more. You’ll learn that, because they have a song about it early on. Standing in their way are three all-knowing newsreaders, President Duncan, press secretary Macduff, Hecate the queen of all media, and Macbeth’s dashing comrade, Banquo. In this tale of ambition, guilt, murder, power, vengeance, and press manipulation, with an original pop score, it’s up to you, the audience, to use your vote and decide if they get their way. It’s just like Shakespeare, but with more key changes.

We initially hoped to produce a version of the show at the Fringe Festival 2020, but a global pandemic intervened.  We are really excited about being part of the 75th anniversary of the Fringe Festival, and producing new work.
