A bicycle-powered, farcical production of Macbeth

An outdoor production of Shakespeare's Macbeth like no other awaits the audience at Painswick's Rococo Garden this summer.

Pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards are a four-strong troupe of actors who are spending the summer bringing environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to venues across the UK.

Join The HandleBards all-female troupe in the gorgeous setting of the Rococo Garden for a bicycle-powered, farcical production of Shakespeare's 'Macbeth'.

Forget the tears and tragedy - this is a frantic, delirious, full-of-beans show like you've never seen before.

The production takes place on Friday, July 16, from 6.30pm - 8.30pm (doors open 5.30pm). This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!

In case of rain, please don't bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching, so please wear these instead.

Tickets cost £18 each and are available to buy at Macbeth @ Painswick Rococo Garden » The HandleBards 

One 'Under 10' ticket is available free of charge with each paid ticket (only available online and in advance).
