Adapted by children’s author Andy Griffiths for Bell Shakespeare, Just Macbeth! follows Griffiths’ semi-autobiographical characters of Andy, best friend Danny, and his sister Lisa as they take on Shakespeare’s classic tragedy. Featuring many clever puns, an insane amount of lunacy, and a very clever Macduff as palyed a garden gnome, there was never a dull moment, and the many children (as well as the adults) in the audience delighted in the very silly toilet jokes as well as the overt physicality of all the actors, not to mention the ridiculous situations and costumes they all found themselves in at one point or another.
