Theatre in the Forest 2022: Macbeth

“Wow! Red Rose Chain have only gone and raised the bar even higher! It featured amazing puppets and some of the best fight choreography I’ve ever witnessed. A fast moving theatrical triumph.”

Stephen Foster

“What a return to theatre in the forest. It just gets better and better. Fabulous cast and crew and show stealing larger than life puppetry!

Suffolk’s BIGGEST and BEST LOVED outdoor theatre event returns this summer!

THEATRE IN THE FOREST is taking up residency at Sutton Hoo with an epic production of MACBETH, one of Shakespeare’s blood thirstiest tragedies, full of witchcraft, passion and reckless ambition!

See Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before – outdoors and under the stars at Sutton Hoo!
Theatre in the Forest is famed for making Shakespeare accessible and fun for all, staying true to the text while injecting high energy, dance, music, colour and magic! This year, MACBETH promises to be the biggest Theatre in the Forest yet, complete with breath-taking giant witch puppets, created by the Olivier award-winning designers for ‘The Life of Pi’, Nick Barnes Puppets!
