A play accompanying the 9th edition of the Dialog – Wrocław International Theatre Festival.
Scotland, 11th century – a place and time where human life is not worth a lot. A man is worth as much as his deeds in the battle, a woman – only when she gives birth to healthy sons. Murders are the way to get rid of your enemies, as well as to take the throne. Ruthlessness, courage are held in high regard, while pity and doubts born out of reflection are signs of weakness. That is why Macbeth’s first crime makes the next one necessary. A mechanism started by one single decision will destroy its architect, robbing him of his peace first. In the world where blood is already flowing, nobody will get to keep their hands clean.
In her take on Macbeth, Agata Duda-Gracz tells the story of temptation and guilt, the seed of evil we all carry in ourselves and about the tragic combination of the heritages of the Antique and Christianity combined in us. She precisely analyses the connections between the characters. In her search for family ties, dependencies and motifs she goes through historical sources and creates an ambiguous and moving background for the main events of the drama. Starring Cezary Studniak as Macbeth and Magda Kumorek as Lady Macbeth. The cast of the play will feature almost all the actors of the Capitol Musical Theatre, as well as actors from Krakow, Poznań, Wrocław and Warsaw and students of the Capitol Musical Study.
