Macbeth. It’s a name well known in theatre, even to the non-theatre goer. And the story is nothing unfamiliar to the well-versed audience member. So how do we keep the play interesting to modern audiences? Do something different with it! This production aims to meet that challenge. Our answer to it: what if Macbeth was a woman? Being manipulated by a man? What if we showed the nature of their twisted relationship in real, physical form? The result is a shocking reality check into the very real, too often relate-able, world of abuse. Abuse of knowledge, abuse of power and abuse of people. Nothing is held back or glossed over in this production. Alex Legge stars as the title character. Adam Zess plays her manipulative and mentally unstable husband. The hero Macduff is played by Kerry Hishon. The remainder of the characters are played by a cast of six who play multiple roles throughout the play. Playing at The Arts Project July 10th-12th, The Voices Collective’s Macbeth is sure to be a memorable theatrical experience.
