Some Perspectives on Shakespeare’s Macbeth
Dig deep into Macbeth
Witches! Prophecies! Murder! Madness! But also a deeper look at this tragedy from the perspective of our time. Participants will first read and discuss Shakespeare’s play. Then we will watch and critique several interpretations, ranging from feudal Japan (Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood) to our modern day (Patrick Stewart’s 2007 London performance). We will discuss Acts One and Two at our first session. Text: any edition is acceptable. Marilyn Scott has led several OLLI study groups and is a devoted theater-goer. The Study Group for those 50 and over is held Fridays February 21 through March 27.
