Micro-Shakespeare at Belfast City Hall [Photos]

Families braved torrential downpours for a dose of Micro-Shakespeare inside Belfast City Hall as part of the 2016 Ulster Bank Belfast International Arts Festival on Saturday October 15.

From ‘double bubble toil and trouble’ in Macbeth to debating whether ‘to be or not to be’ in Hamlet, parents and children engaged in a unique afternoon featuring some of William Shakespeare’s greatest works in using some of the strangest objects in the most wonderful of ways. 

Micro-Shakespeare is a co-production between the National Theatre of Great Britain and Laitrum Theatre. How? Through six small theatres conceived as small works of art, the plays are adapted with the participation of the spectators.

The Ulster Bank Belfast International Arts Festival is on until Saturday 29 October. To view the remaining programme visit the website here -
