Andy Cannon is a man with storytelling in his blood; a performer who can take the trickiest, most complicated of narratives and deliver it to a young audience as if it were a simple nursery rhyme….

Do yourself a favour and go and see this brilliant version of Macbeth. I went with two children 10 and 12 and an 83 year old grandpa and we were utterly transfixed by the wit, charm and clever telling of this great play. What a joy to watch storytelling like this – thank you!
