The Play

London's The Times proclaims, "If it's riveting spectacle, challenging ideas and human drama you want, this is the show to see." Playwright David Greig's captivating sequel to Shakespeare's Scottish play explores one man's attempt to restore peace in a country consumed by war. Macbeth is dead. Under cover of night, the English army has swept in, killed the tyrant and claimed Scotland's seat of power. But efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control. Fierce one minute and funny the next, Greig's extraordinary ability to infuse a dark story with rich humor results in a lively, vital examination of power—illuminating uncanny parallels between Scotland's medieval and present-day political landscapes.
