Inside: Macbeth is an event created to open up discussion around the topics and themes of the production. The morning will comprise two talks by leading academics and specialists and a panel discussion with the director Adele Thomas and the Tobacco Factory Theatres Producing team.
Tea, coffee and croissants will be served in the morning, and a buffet lunch will be provided at 1pm.
The morning activities will include:
- Why is Macbeth Frightening? Tragedy, Witchcraft, and Dis-integrated Bodies. A talk by Dr Laurence Publicover, Lecturer in English (Shakespeare), University of Bristol.
- Director in Conversation. Hear the director Adele Thomas talking about the influences and creative decisions that have fed into this production of Macbeth.
- Shakespeare’s Language. Explore how Shakespeare has influenced the English language and what is required of an actor to perform it. A talk by Tess Dignan, voice specialist from the Royal Shakespeare Company and Rose Bruford College.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve not seen the production in advance; the morning is timed so that you can watch the matinee performance on the same day, should you wish.
