Arena Theatre are very proud to announce that have been selected as one of the RSC's participants in their latest Open Stages programme and their Celtic production of Macbeth will be appearing at the Mowlem.
The director, Gareth Richards, is very excited to attend a weekend of workshops at the RSC in Stratford at the end of the month, followed by more workshops for the cast at the Nuffield in Southampton next month.
The play is believed to have been written between 1603 and 1607, and is most commonly dated 1606. It is Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy, and tells the story of a brave Scottish general named Macbeth who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of arrogance, madness, and death.
Whilst a historical piece, much of the story is timeless and can readily be relocated in time without any change in dialogue. This is a must for anyone who has not seen the play before.
