CAMBRIDGE UNI PRESS

After having impressed with one of our schools performances of MACBETH, FOUR OF SWORDS was approached to participate in a pilot project to develop online video resources to accompany the teaching of GCSE texts. We collaborated closely on the design of the MACBETH, JEKYLL & HYDE and FRANKENSTEIN components, as well as appearing as actors in the resultant films. Scroll down to see some clips!

“Between our vision of what classroom resources could be like and the Swords’ pioneering take on heritage texts, we have the best package of material I have ever been privileged to work on.”
Martin Phillips, ex-Chief Examiner and Project Co-ordinator

Just as Summer time is flourishing on the earth, FOUR OF SWORDS desires to lead you into the underworld of BEER QUARRY CAVES for their own unique and blood-curdling version of The Scottish!

This subterranean production is a reprisal of FOUR OF SWORDS’ hit 2014/16 show, and presents the Witches as Viking priestesses and goddesses of Destiny who guide the audience through the labyrinthine caverns of Macbeth’s homicidal ambition. The show features Shamanic techniques, haunting live music, gruesome film projections, Icelandic chanting, a splash or two of gore and even some Highland sword-dancing.

The company deserve huge applause – there were strong performances all round with too many stand-out moments to describe.
Anna Marks, Remotegoat

The connected caves – complete with bats – echo with a constant drip-drip-drip, perfectly conjuring the chill dankness of a medieval Scottish castle.
Belinda Dillon, Exeunt Magazine

As with previous FOUR OF SWORDS productions, audiences will be standing and walking for the duration of the 1 hour 15 min show. Please wear sensible footwear, warm clothing and bring a torch to help you find your way to and from the car! Please be advised that this show is too creepy for under 11s.
