The Castle Players – Macbeth
For its 30th Summer production Castle Players brings Shakespeare’s classic tale of ‘vaulting ambition’ to the stage, in the grounds of the Museum. Superstition, chance and opportunity haunt Macbeth’s journey from loyal commander to despotic king, and having achieved his ultimate goal – to be crowned King of Scotland – he must face the inevitability of his own destruction. The Three Witches, Duncan’s murder, Banquo’s Ghost and the driving ambition of Lady Macbeth have haunted the stage for over four centuries again in the drama that bears the witness to the bloody hand of Fate.
