Recommended for 14+ due to themes of violence and strong sense of threat. Trigger warning: This performance contains potentially distressing material in the form of personal accounts of war and descriptions/depictions of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

Advance Sales Notice: Our See Tickets allocation goes off-sale a few hours before the show, and the day before for matinee performances: this doesn't mean tickets are unavailable. On the day, you can normally get tickets on the door or on Yplan - please keep an eye on our twitter feed for news on sold out shows.

On previous shows:

‘Director Joel Scott plays with us, creating moments of disorientation that cow us into submission but also gives us brilliant images that give distance and perspective.’ – The Guardian on Reverence

The emotional impact of these beautifully sculpted, barely lit and flickering scenes is as potent and disorientating as a shot of absinthe.’ – Time Out on The Ghost Sonata

The Devil Speaks True is a chilling visceral experience with you, the audience, cast as Banquo from Macbeth in an adventure tracing Banquo’s journey from bloody battlefield to spectral banquet table.

Sitting in darkness for a large part of the production and wearing wireless headphones, you will be surrounded by a world created through binaural sound, video projection and live performance.

The Devil Speaks True is a total immersive experience offering an intimate perspective of a man struggling to come to terms with his place in a violent and tyrannical world. Focussing on the physiological effects on men returning home from war and the bond between soldiers, the production intersperses Shakespeare’s text with interviews with ex-servicement.

The Devil Speaks True (or Shakespeare’s Macbeth as told by Banquo)
