#SuchStuff s3 e10: Something wicked this way comes... again

  The latest instalment of Such Stuff features ghost stories, weird objects and, of course, the Scottish play


Something wicked this way comes… again

It’s Halloween at the Globe! We searched the Globe high and low for all things superstitious and spooky… We go behind the scenes of a production of Macbeth, chatting to director Rob Hastie about witches, superstitions and saying the name of the Scottish Play.

We go Globe ghost hunting with Access Manager David Bellwood, and discover incredible ghost stories and urban legends, old and new, from the Globe and beyond.

Prosthetics artist Suzi Battersby tells us how to make a severed head, and about the weirdest prosthetic prop she’s ever made for theatre.

‘By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes’
