SHAKESPEARE’S tragedy Macbeth will have a three week run in Penge as the Bridge House Theatre celebrates its first birthday.

The Scottish play will run at the intimate 50-seat theatre from March 28, starring a seven-strong cast of seasoned West End pros whose credits include the likes of Jersey Boys, Les Mis, Guys and Dolls and Phantom of the Opera.

Tickets cost from £11 (or from £7.50 for preview shows on March 26 and 27) at
