Fringe REVIEW: Is This a Dagger? - ★★★★★

Is This a Dagger?

Children's Show (Storytelling)

Age: 8+

Venue: Scottish Storytelling Centre

Dates: until 29th August, 1:00pm

Mix Up Theatre Reviews: ★★★★★

By the pricking of my thumb, something wicked this way comes. Andy Cannon returns to the Netherbow stage to tell Shakespeare’s classic, taking audiences on a thousand-year journey from fact to fiction and back again. 'A tale of sound and fury, signifying first-class theatre for everyone over eight' (Herald). 'Strikingly heartfelt and intelligent… immensely classy stuff' (Scotsman).

“I really enjoyed Is this a Dagger at the Scottish Storytelling centre. It’s named after the line Macbeth said before he killed Duncan. I give it eleventeen stars out of five!

I also need to list the actors of this:

Guy with a kilt As McBeth

Guy with a kilt as Lady McBeth

Guy with a kilt as Banko

Guy with a kilt as Duncan

Guy with a kilt as Duncan’s kid

Guy with a kilt as Duncan’s kid dos

Guy with a kilt as Witch Uno

Guy with a kilt as Double Trouble Witch

Guy with a kilt as which Witch? The third one!

It’s pretty dark for a children’s show maybe they should remove the suicide and some of the murders.

It’s quite eerie lady Macbeth having these terrible nightmares and Macbeth seeing things. Also the choice of people that came out of the cauldron. I drew these characters based on the 4 visions Macbeth saw in the cauldron: The old man head, a child covered in blood, a prince, and 8 kings."
