Shakespeare’s great tragedy of a man of action beset by witches, war and his own ambitions. It tells the story of a couple, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, trapped in a world view that values violence and acquisition as the highest of masculine virtues, a world in which the drive to achieve runs in concert with the need to destroy and ravage: “When you durst do it, then you were a man.”
This production takes place in the 80s, the period whose toxic masculinity still haunts us today.
Director: William Kerr
Assistant Directors: Kitty Kerr, Evan Friesen, Cali Sproule
"When you durst do it, then you were a man; And to be more than what you were, you would Be so much more the man."
