AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Just Macbeth! by Andy Griffiths and directed by Wayne Harrison, is a really silly version of Shakespeare's great big gory tragedy starring Andy, Lisa, Danny and (yuck!) Jen from the Just Tricking! Just Stupid! and Just Shocking! books. And when we say really silly, we mean really, really silly as it is performed by six funny but tragic actors and a garden gnome and features a severed head that talks Shakespearean. And when we say really, really silly, we mean really, really, really silly as there are witches and Wizz Fizz and ghosts and girl germs and weird Elizabethan things like soliloquies and sharp swords and other things beginning with S.'
