Full of Sound and Fury

Full of Sound and Fury

Ted Hughes Theatre, Calder High School, Mytholmroyd 8.00pm to 9.15pm Pay What You Want (Tickets sold on door prior to performance)

In this UK premiere, Dreamscape Theatre brings you a new dark comedy by Roman de Fruscan.

What do actors really think of each other? What happens when a group of highly talented, highly motivated and highly strung actors get together in a production of Macbeth?

Using original music and photography, and combining the best known parts of Shakespeare’s text with fastpaced modern dialogue, Full of Sound and Fury explores the many superstitions connected with Macbeth and the theatre, and uncovers the real world of the professional actor.

Suitable for ages 12+ NB: The show contains one photographic image of nudity.

Empirical expertly incorporates elements of classical, African and Cuban musical forms into its original, sophisticated, fresh-sounding jazz. Empirical makes a point of not centring itself on a specific front line or leader; it is very much a complete band, each member contributing equally, adding their own facets to the overall sound.

In 2008 Empirical triumphed at the New York Jazz Festival and were the only non-US band to appear at the iconic Newport Jazz Festival where they received a standing ovation. Since then appearances at the North Sea Festival and the major Canadian Jazz Festivals have increased their reputation and led to a sell-out run at London’s Ronnie Scott’s Club.

‘A gifted and compositionally powerful post-bop group that’s already on the way to becoming the British scene’s international success story’ (The Guardian)
