For our second excursion into the works of Shakespeare, we choose a fast-paced adaptation of Macbeth - a bloody tale which bursts with suspense and theatrical magic. This abridged version retained much of the original language and the tale of Macbeth's murderous climb to the throne of Scotland delivered the mystery and magic of the original text in a condensed and easily-relatable form.
Performed by a cast of 9 older members, the play was created as a collaboration between the cast and directors, enabling the cast to learn and develop their characters within the rehearsal process. The result was a truly engaging, immersive production, performed in thrust, in a simple setting that demanded powerful performances from the actors and they delivered. A great production that was enjoyed by good audiences throughout the run and allowed some of our older more accomplished actors to conquer a challenging piece.
We were delighted also the be awarded Best Poster in the NODA Eastern Region for the fantastic artwork created by our volunteer graphic designer Jenni Newman – a well deserved accolade for her work.
