by Shakespeare at Winedale
Apr. 22 - Apr. 26, 2014
This April, the Shakespeare at Winedale Spring Class will perform one of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, Macbeth, as the culmination of a semester of work on Shakespeare’s dramatic language.
Shakespeare’s shortest tragedy leads audiences at breakneck pace through Macbeth’s bloody battle to win the throne of Scotland. The ultimate power couple, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, struggle with the consequences of their violent ways. Filled with supernatural forces and brutal events, this play examines the darkest side of humanity.
This production of Macbeth will also feature an interesting twist: the roles of Macbeth and the Lady will be triple cast. Loehlin says, “I distributed the roles of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth among three students apiece in part for practical and educational reasons--to share the line burden more equitably, and to give more students an opportunity to explore those roles. But I think it also will allow us to look in a different way at the particular journeys of each of those characters, and the stages they go through in their ambitious rise to power, their savage struggle to retain it, and their final, anguished descent.”
