Celebrating

10 years of the Kings Theatre Trust In 2001, The Kings Theatre might have been turned into a pub when J D Wetherspoon put in a bid to buy the theatre. However, by July 2001, AKTER (Action for Kings TheatrE Restoration) had gathered a petition of 26,675 signatures to save the theatre, which was then purchased by Portsmouth City Council and leased to the Kings Theatre Trust Ltd, who undertook to run the theatre and restore the building for the community.

The Icarus Theatre Collective in conjunction with associate producers The Kings Theatre PORTSMOUTH and South Hill Park Arts Centre present...

Macbeth “Spite, Spectres, and Soothesayers... ...something wicked this way comes...” “✩✩✩✩✩” EdFringe

Icarus voted Best Production Runner Up at The Guide Awards for Journey’s End

Highly acclaimed Icarus Theatre Collective presents a bold and exciting performance of Shakespeare’s most bloody and fear-filled tragedy. The vicious, barbaric undercurrent in Shakespeare’s epic erupts in this kinetic, blood-thirsty production. Unrivalled on the battlefield, Macbeth is rewarded with rank and favour by a grateful king. But with each enemy Macbeth butchers to serve his own vaulting ambition, his lust for power takes a more menacing grip until he ferociously seizes the throne. But, violence breeds violence, and a reign born in blood quickly spirals out of control as Macbeth’s actions return to destroy him. Blending traditional and inventive physical theatre techniques, original live music, evocative design, and using the original verse, this slick production is perfect for audiences new to Macbeth and those already well acquainted with Shakespeare’s tragedies.

The result of this misspent youth is his hilarious show, One-Man Star Wars™ Trilogy, where he singlehandedly plays all the characters, sings the music, flies the ships, fights the battles and condenses the plots into just sixty minutes!

In this strange new world will Lucas ultimately find the courage to stand up for himself?
