Macbeth

Student matinee performances May 24-June 1 | Public Performance: June 1 at 7pm

Carling-Sorenson Theater, Babson College, Wellesley

By William Shakespeare

Directed by David R. Gammons

Set in the indulgent world of 1980s Wall Street, Macbeth dramatizes the damaging effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Supernatural influences stir in the land, spurring Macbeth and his wife to climb a violent ladder to power. Ambition, fear and guilt collide as they struggle to maintain their grasp and dire consequences for their bloody deeds loom ever closer.

*Macbeth is a particularly bloody and violent play with some elements that might be intense for younger audiences. Scenes will include: staged-combat, blood, murder and suicide. Strong design choices, including dynamic lighting and sound, will reinforce these story elements. Specifically there will be flashing lights, loud amplified sounds, and an atmospheric fog effect.  Set in a more modern setting (1980’s)  may make some of those themes feel more “real” than a traditional telling might. We recommend discussing the context of these scenes with your students before and after you view our production.

Stage2 productions are presented using Shakespeare’s original text, cut for length to approximately 1.5 hours without intermission. Our cuts focus on highlighting the themes, ideas and language that will resonate strongly for a student audience. Our creative team and performers make choices that serve to illuminate the storytelling for this audience without “watering down” the source material.

This year’s Stage2 production is created with a high school audience in mind. Macbeth touches on themes and imagery of violence which may be challenging for younger viewers; however, we encourage educators and/or parents to read the play being presented and make the best choice for their students of any age. Please use the information and graphic below to gain a better idea of what to expect from this year’s play.

William Shakespeare
Playwright

William Shakespeare was a renowned English poet, playwright, and actor born in 1564, in Stratford-upon-Avon. His birthday is most commonly celebrated on 23 April, which is also believed to be the date on which he died in 1616. Shakespeare was a prolific writer during the Elizabethan and Jacobean ages of British theatre (sometimes referred to as the English Renaissance or the Early Modern Period). Shakespeare’s plays are perhaps his most enduring legacy, but they are not the only things he wrote. Shakespeare’s poetry has also remained popular to this day.

Shakespeare’s work includes 38 plays, 2 narrative poems, a collection of 154 sonnets, and other poems as well. No original manuscripts of Shakespeare’s plays are known to exist today, and about half of Shakespeare’s plays are only available to us because a group of actors in his company collected them for publication after his death. These writings were brought together in what is known as the First Folio (‘Folio’ refers to the size of the paper used). It contained 36 of his plays, and none of his poetry. Shakespeare’s legacy is as rich and diverse as his work; his plays have spawned countless adaptations across multiple genres and cultures, and his plays have had an enduring presence on stage and film.

His writings have been compiled in various iterations of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare by different entities, which usually include all of his plays, his sonnets, and his other poems. From Stratford to London and beyond, William Shakespeare was and is one of the most important literary figures of the English language.
