THE TWO PLAYS

Macbeth

“It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”

Macbeth is bloody, fast-paced, action-packed and psychologically tense. Populated by witches, ghosts and haunting apparitions, it tells the story of over-reaching ambition, a toxic marriage, a kingdom in crisis and a man’s encounter with his own darkest self.

Returning victorious from battle in the service of King Duncan of Scotland, Macbeth and Banquo encounter three witches who prophesy that Macbeth will become Thane of Cawdor and then King of Scotland, while Banquo’s descendants will be kings. Consumed by ambition and spurred on by his wife, Macbeth murders Duncan and assumes the crown.

Macbeth then embarks on a murderous path to secure his position and confront his own fears.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

“The course of true love never did run smooth.”

One of Shakespeare’s funniest and most delightful comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a riot of criss-crossed love and feuding fairies, with clod-hopping amateur actors and a magical potion adding to the mayhem.

In Athens, Hermia is in love with Lysander, and Helena is in love with Demetrius. But Hermia’s father insists that his daughter marry Demetrius. Hermia and Lysander decide to elope, confiding in Helena who in turn tells Demetrius, hoping that her honesty will win his heart. That night all four set out into the wood near Athens, where the fairy king and queen, Oberon and Titania, are arguing.
