ACTOR Simon Spencer-Hyde yesterday flew the flag for a timely retelling of Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth.

Mr Spencer-Hyde plays Banquo and Macduff in Creation Theatre’s outdoor production at Oxford’s Lady Margaret Hall from today until September 13.

Described as a ‘political thriller and a horror story’, the show is set within a First World War sanatorium within earshot of the Western Front.
