AUDITION MATERIAL

Upon registration, auditioners will be provided a collection of material to choose from. They are asked to prepare a sonnet and a selection from the play. It is not necessary to be off-book. Auditioners are welcome to prepare a piece as well, but that is not an obligation.

THE PLAY

A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death.

In this post-modern exploration of Macbeth, actors will be working with an abridged version of the text. The action of the play is set in a dystopian post-war society - a kingdom that was faced with the brink of total destruction.

THE ROLES

A number of roles have been cut and/or amalgamated in working version of the text.
