Macbeth on the Estate was a 1997 adaptation of Macbeth and set on the Ladywood Estate in Birmingham.

The following comment was left on the Pebble Mill Facebook group:

Julian Hitchcock: ‘Juliet Bravo: yes,- if I didn’t work on all productions, it was close.
The History Man: yes,- I was the floor assistant. And what a great cast, too: Anthony Sher, Michael Hordern, Geraldine James. I even appeared in it myself: as Michael’s hand swiftly shutting a blind or curtain.’
