The University of Toledo Department of Theatre & Film to stage Shakespeare’s Macbeth, April 17-19, 22-26

The University of Toledo Department of Theatre and Film will perform Shakespeare’s Macbeth Friday, April 17 through Sunday, April 19, and Wednesday April 22 through Sunday, April 26, 2009. Performances on Wednesday-Saturday are at 7:30 p.m. Sunday performances are at 2 p.m.

is considered one of Shakespeare's “four great tragedies,” along with Hamlet, Othello, and King Lear.  It explores the protagonist's deep transformation from courage and valor to treachery and greed, caused by what Macbeth calls “vaulting ambition,” ingrained in all of human nature.  

The play’s director, UT assistant theatre professor and head of acting for the department Cornel Gabara, says that “in Shakespeare's plays, the main characters are never victims of external factors, but instead, their transformation is a result of their own actions and choices. They bring their downfall upon themselves through their own inability to resist the temptations of all the negative aspects of human nature, which in Macbeth’s case is greed and desire for power.”
Patrons who come to the play expecting to see an Elizabethan set may be hard-pressed to determine in which period the play is taking place. Gabara says that was a deliberate decision because the message of the play is timeless. “This play has been done in numerous ways and it works because it deals with human nature, which is the same regardless of time or space.”
