Marthinus Basson's acclaimed adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth, macbeth.slapeloos, will be staged at the Baxter Theatre from 4 to 21 February at 19h30 nightly.

Caption: Edwin van der Walt, Dawid Minnaar, Antoinette Kellermann, Anna-Mart van der Merwe, Senzo Madikane and Jana Cilliers star in macbeth slapeloos at the Baxter in February.

The 'Scottish play' has already amassed nine awards and several nominations at various festivals around the country and features doyennes of Afrikaans theatre, Anna-Mart van der Merwe, Jana Cilliers and Antoinette Kellermann, alongside Dawid Minnaar in the title role.

Critic Nigel Vermaas called it "... brilliant theatre ... a dream production", while The Star Tonight's Diane de Beer wrote: "Those of us who witnessed what this wise wizard of magical storytelling pulled out of his hat, again, feel blessed."

Performed in Afrikaans with English surtitles, macbeth.slapeloos has an age restriction of 14 years. Booking is through Computicket on 0861 915 8000, online at www.computicket.com or at any Shoprite Checkers outlet.
