What happens when you combine Shakespeare‘s classic tragedy Macbeth with the most mischievous and conniving of fantasy creatures? Well, you get Goblin: Macbeth.
After becoming a surprise hit of the Calgary theatre season, Goblin: Macbeth is returning with its unique, entertaining, and ingenious spin on the classic Shakespeare play. Goblin: Macbeth takes the well-known production and infuses it with elements of improv comedy, horror, and—of course—goblins, to create an incredibly unconventional Shakespeare experience.

Goblin: Macbeth starts Septembers 29 and runs until October 16.
