In this re-imagined production of one of Shakespeare’s most spellbinding plays, women and non-binary actors are at the center. While Macbeth grapples with many themes and issues, from the supernatural, to violence, to power, to guilt, all at full-force and intensity, the question of gender is typically brushed aside in productions. The play, though, is deeply interested in the way in which the traditional gender binary is established and maintained; the characters must be either a man or a woman. How, then, can a production of this master work grapple with the questions of gender identity in a modern understanding of the spectrum? Helmed by director and Lecturer in Theater Elena Araoz and an entirely female-presenting and non-binary cast, this production explores the manifestations of gender and power that are already present and all-encompassing in the original text. Featuring seniors Tessa Albertson '20 and Abby Spare '20, with set design by Milan Eldridge '20.
