The ghost of Banquo

April 2009

In 11th century Scotland, King Duncan is in the difficult position of fighting a war on three fronts. Fortunately he has two mighty generals, Banquo and Macbeth, to defend his country. When the black forces of witchcraft convince Macbeth that he is destined to be the next King of Scotland, he and the corrupt Lady Macbeth decide to risk their own souls in a desperate attempt to gain ultimate power

Murder, temptation and treachery dominate the world of Macbeth, the last and darkest of Shakespeare’s tragedies. This chilling tale of greed, corruption and death is a powerful political thriller that follows Macbeth’s transformation from a battlefield hero to a bloody tyrant. Macbeth lives in a world torn by war, in which ambition and superstition lead him to murder king and comrade in his quest for the crown, only to lose all, in the process turning his country upside down. The madness of Lady Macbeth, ghostly apparitions and the “weird sisters” provide a sinister backdrop to this savage political thriller. 

A large cast performing “In the round” did a magnificent job in bringing to life Shakespeare’s dark, devastating tragedy.
