A re-imagined production of Macbeth – complete with motorbikes, martial artists and acrobats – will form the centrepiece of a five-day arts festival in Moray.
Macbeth the Remix will be performed every night at Brodie Castle during the Findhorn Bay Arts Festival in September.
The show will also include computerised visuals projected onto the walls of the castle.
Festival director Kresanna Aignercor said: “The production is only an hour long compared to the original three hour play, with many of the parts being sung rather than spoken.
“It might divide opinion but we’re determined that it’s not going to be bland. It will have the ‘wow’ factor and bring to life the mayhem and magic of the original play.
“However, the production is just one of so many exciting events that are going to be happening in the area over the five days.
“There are so many talented people living locally and the festival is going to celebrate that fact.”
The festival was launched last year as a one day affair, but has now been extended over five days due to its initial success.
More than 50 events have already been lined up around the Findhorn and Forres areas for what is being billed as a “carnival of drama, music and visual arts”.
Among the many acts appearing will be singer Eddi Reader, who has enjoyed a successful solo career after heading up 1980s band Fairground Attraction.
In addition, a series of talks called Macbeth: The Red King will give a background of the main character.
Although professional actors will play the lead roles in Macbeth the Remix, the production is seeking locals to join the cast.

The full festival line-up will be revealed on June 1. Tickets can be bought at www.findhornbayartsfestival.com.
