Top Dog Theatre

For this year’s Summer Shakespeare Festival, Top Dog Theatre strays from its usual path of presenting another comedy, and will instead portray the treacherous deeds and mysterious happenings of Macbeth. This year’s show is directed by Derek Doddington.

Set in Scotland, mainly within and without the Castle of Macbeth, Mona Vale will be transformed for this great tragedy of greed, fate and treason all culminating in the ultimate fear and madness of Macbeth and his wife.

“When shall we three meet again” opens the play, as the three witches confront Macbeth with a prophesy that he will one day become King of Scotland. Ambition and treachery abound as Macbeth is persuaded by his callous and ambitious wife to eliminate all those who stand in their way.

Macbeth leaves a wake of bloodied daggers, deceived friends and brutal murders, as he, filled with guilt and insecurity, strives to protect that which he has taken unlawfully. And then, the madness sets in. Banquo’s bloodied ghost haunts Macbeth. “Out damn spot”, cries Lady Macbeth as her conscience tortures her, and she imagines her hands are covered with blood.
