During this unique, site-responsive adaptation of Macbeth, Butterfly invite you to join the characters as you walk along the paths following the action, whilst the story unfolds all around you.

Witches wait for Macbeth in the woodlands. They dance in delight, putting their deadly prophecy in motion, whilst Macbeth grapples with ambition, greed and power. Loyalty is tested as Macbeth pursues the crown, but loses it all, in Shakespeare's infamous tragedy. Is power really worth the ultimate price?
