Directed by Bethan Turner, watch BSUTC make its Shakespeare debut as Macbeth is played by a woman living in the 1980s corporate world. We’re told to think Dynasty, but with murder and lesbianism in the mix too. If this sounds like your bag, get your tickets on Eventbrite now.

Philippa Hanna, Plug, 6 April, 6pm

British singer-songwriter Philippa Hanna will bring her latest album Come Back Fighting and hits from her four previous albums to Plug this Friday.
