Mac an Bheatha produced by Fíbín to be staged in Connemara and Galway City

Fibín will stage a theatre production of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth at the end of the month. ‘Mac an Bheatha’ is the name of the protagonist in this daring interpretation directed by Philip Doherty. This will be the third theatre production by Fíbín since opening the doors of their new headquarters in Inverin in August of this year. There will also be four performances in Galway’s Printworks building, beside the Connacht Tribune offices.

This telling of Shakespeare’s tragic tale is set in the secret club of a gang of ultra-violent nationalists. A story of murder, guilt and revenge is radically re-imagined by Fíbín into a dread-filled immersive gig, where only Irish is spoken, and ambition is infinite in a lawless world.

Will the prophecies of three punk-metal witches, and the goading of his ambitious wife (Lady Macbeth played by Liz Fitzgibbon), prompt a rebel soldier (Mac an Bheatha played by Lochlann Ó Mearáin) to kill the leader of a new government, in order to succeed him on the throne of power.
