The Devil Speaks True is an epic immersive adventure, with the audience placed in the centre of Banquo's rapidly unraveling existence.


Wearing wireless headphones, the audience is led to a seat in a pitch black room. Here they remain as the story of Macbeth told from Banquo's perspective crashes around them. Phantasmagoric witches appear inches from the faces of the audience, the scent of the Scottish pine accents Banquo's bloody dance of death, and the binaural sounds of modern warfare are audible 360 degrees around the heads of the audience.

The Devil Speaks True is an intense auditory experience that uses Shakespeare's text, projection, scent, special effects, magic and dance to explore the post traumatic stress of Macbeth's one time companion Banquo, and the journey to his death.
