Theatr Mwldan continues its traditional summer outdoor performances at the Welsh Wildlife Centre, Cilgerran in partnership with The Wildlife Trust of South and West Wales beginning with Macbeth on Tuesday 19 August at 7.30pm.
Award-winning and Equity endorsed Illyria return in August, this time taking on the greatest of Shakespeare’s tragedies; Macbeth. The production is performed on a stage closely replicating those of 17th-century touring troupes. Expect a gripping story and the dazzling swordplay for which Illyria has an unmatched reputation.
A brave military hero... A noble and devoted subject... A popular leader respected by fellow Thanes and trusted by the King himself. Macbeth’s outstanding qualities and achievements ensure that he has a bright future ahead of him. Three mad witches he meets after a battle confirm no less. Or, rather, two of them do. The third prophesies rather more than a rise in his fortunes: she states that he will become King himself. One
brief, crazy suggestion sows a seed of ambition, causes the unravelling of a great man, and incites a chain of treachery, murder and destruction.
The season of performances, which ends with George’s Marvellous Medicine on Sunday 31 August, are presented on a site with panoramic views of the Teifi Marshes, adjacent to the Wildlife Centre building which offers meals and refreshments in The Glasshouse Café, plus gift shop and toilets.
