Something wicked this way comes.

Blood, lust and magic combine in this dark and disconcerting theatrical experience to make it one of the highlights of outdoor theatre in Oxford this year.

OTG in association with the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Open Stages Project presents Macbeth, Shakespeare's disturbing tale of witchcraft, murder and tyranny.

The company that brought you last year’s critically acclaimed Antony and Cleopatra returns once again to the grounds of Trinity College, in the heart of Oxford. The atmospheric wooded gardens of this historic location provide the perfect backdrop for this most infamous of Shakespeare’s tragedies.

With a production history dating back over fifty years, OTG has staged some of the city’s most memorable open-air performances, and this year’s promises to be no exception.

A summer Shakespeare in an Oxford college garden – not to be missed.
