5-8pm at Derby Theatre, St Peters Quarter, Derby DE1 2NF 

Part of Derby Theatre's scratch night

"Unsex me here"
: Lady Macbeth

Shane is working on a new act as he waits for his boyfriend to come round for dinner. Combining his passions for circus and Shakespeare, he creates an anxious tightrope-walking drag queen called Lady M.

As he does so, he attempts to work out where his obsession with Lady Macbeth comes from, how her story relates to him, the women in his life and his own identity.

With anxiety and euphoria, serpents and flowers, blood and water, can Lady M’s body and spirit conjoin to complete her act without falling off?

Click here for details of the whole scratch night, which features five new pieces of theatre at various stages of development.

Caliban's Island © QUAD ParticipateWednesday 29 November 2017
6-8pm at QUAD, Market Place, Derby DE1 3AS 

Public workshop inspired by The Tempest

"This island's mine!"
: Caliban

When Caliban's mother died, he inherited her island. Then Prospero, a magician from the mainland, took over the island and made Caliban his slave.

Now Prospero has returned to his old home and Caliban - set free - needs your help to restore his island to its former glory.

Join other participants to work with Caliban to make a cave his home, build a resting-place for his mother, plant trees and flowers, grow midnight mushrooms, turn barren places into fertile land, transform brine pits into fresh springs and populate the island with wolves, sheep and spirits.

This exciting new workshop brings together the language of Shakespeare and the creativity of Minecraft for a unique team-based experience. You don't have to be a Minecraft or Shakespeare expert to take part.
