Palace Stables to host open-air battle of the bards MacHamLear

The event has issued an age guidance of 9 years +

Calling all Shakespeare lovers! You are invited to take part in a unique experiment that will answer the question keeping literary scholars up at night… which play is the best the Bard has to offer?

Help us to decide by being part of an exciting, new theatre competition ‘Will of the People’.

In Round One, we’ll be pitting Macbeth, Hamlet, and King Lear against each other, as some of the finest actors [that we can afford!] make their case for why their tragedy should be performed that evening, to win a place in the next round of the competition.

Heartbreak Productions invites you to come and cast your vote at the Battle of the Bard.

Performed in the open-air, MacHamLear is a farcical piece of new writing from award-winning playwright Michael Davies that shamelessly exploits the genius of England’s most celebrated writer.

Grab your copy of the Complete Works, a chair/blanket, weather appropriate gear, and a few nibbles, and prepare to be tickled pink as the three iconic plays are performed with passion, pep, and punch.

Please note this event will take place outdoors at the Palace Garden, Palace Demesne, Armagh. Attendees are encouraged to dress accordingly. The running time for this performance is 2 hours 15 minutes including interval.
