"Whats done cannot be undone”: Behind the Scenes of Macbeth at the Royal Highland Centre

Only a few days into 2024, the Lowland Hall was transformed into the backdrop for a new staging off Shakespeare's Macbeth, with stars from stage and screen Ralph Fiennes and Indira Varma produced by Underbelly and Wessex Grove  

The versatile nature of the Lowland Hall allowed the space to reimagine the medieval Scotland of Macbeth, creating an immersive and bespoke theatre. This included 1,000 capacity raked seating surrounding a thrust stage , sound and lighting control area and an immersive guest walk through experience.

Front of house a full scale bar with dwell tables were built for pre-show and interval refreshment as well as box office facilities and toilets.   

Back stage, the Strathmore Restaurant was transformed into cast dressing rooms, with the kitchen being set up as a bespoke laundry service in order to keep the costumes clean for each performance. 

Macbeth The Show at the Lowland Hall was not just the first ever theatrical production to take place at the Royal Highland Centre, it was a great example of the transformative power and versatility of our spaces.
