It is medieval Scotland. Three witches decide to confront the great Scottish general Macbeth on his victorious return from a war between Scotland and Norway. The Scottish king, Duncan, decides that he will confer the title of the traitorous Cawdor on the heroic Macbeth. Macbeth, and another General called Banquo, happen upon the three witches. The witches predict that he will one day become king.
Macbeth is one of William Shakespeare’s great tragedies. The themes illustrated in the play include ambition, fate, deception and treachery. Allan Roberts has directed an ensemble cast of senior students in a Macbeth for the modern world where Scotland is in turmoil, adrift in an atmosphere of constant surveillance, changing allegiances and bloody ambition. And where the struggle for power corrupts even the noblest of patriots.
Macbeth is performed by senior drama students at Rangitoto College. This year’s production will be the first time Rangitoto College seniors have staged a play at The PumpHouse.
This is a play worth experiencing...
