Macbeth follows a general (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 Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. This interpretation will explore themes of masculinity and gang mentality.
Dr. Bill Kerr will be directing this epic Shakespearean drama. Bill Kerr is also a professor at the University of Manitoba and specializes in directing, acting, dramaturgy, dramatic literature, Irish literature, post–colonial literature, play analysis, acting theory, performance theory, Greek theatre, theatre history, and speculative fiction.
