Shakespeare at Stubbings 14th to 18th June 2022

William Shakespeare's ‘Macbeth’ 

'That which hath made them drunk hath made me bold: What hath quenched them hath given me fire.'

Stubbings are very pleased to be welcoming back The Garden Players in June 2022 for five open air performances of Shakespeare's tragic masterpiece, directed by Louise Tait.

Following acclaimed performances in 2013, 2014 and 2015, five completely sold out performances of A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2017, The Tempest in 2019 and The Merry Wives of Windsor in 2021, The Garden Players return in 2022 with an exciting new production of one of Shakespeare's finest plays.

Shakespeare’s dark tragedy tells of ambition and guilt amidst a background of regicide, violence and the supernatural. When a trio of witches tells returning hero warrior Macbeth that he is fated to become King of Scotland, he attempts to forge his own destiny. Aided and encouraged by his wife, he embarks on a guilt-ridden reign of terror.

“Powerful and compelling …. gripping and absorbing on a warm summer’s evening!“

This charity event will be sponsored by Grundon the UK's leading family-owned supplier of waste management, environmental and recycling solutions, Norman & Frances Grundon and Stuart & Trish Fletcher. All proceeds will go to the national charity, Child Bereavement UK based in Loudwater, High Wycombe.

Quotes from previous reviews...

“STARTING in 2008 the Garden Players’ productions have become a much anticipated annual event in the area, so it was with great excitement that I looked forward to their latest performance. While the setting was stunning, and a star in itself, the cast really shone.”
Beaconsfield Advertiser

“THE Garden Players reignited my love for William Shakespeare - it was a real pleasure to see one of his best plays performed by such a competent cast.”
