Well 'tis a tale for Halloween, just a bit late in arriving.

And remember this is the proper version, not the copy that Shaky put out, this is a serious meditation on crabbit and buckie with valuable life lessons for all about the drunken, crabbit psychology of humanity. Nod 
And not in anyway at all a cheap knock off of the original with the words buckie and crabbit inserted randomly into it Evil or Very Mad

{{{I really am enjoying it, you know. Wink}}}

MacBeth is probably my favorite Shakespeare, but that's largely because it was undoubtedly the best of the Shakespeare productions I've seen. I've never cared for reading plays, but I like seeing a full production. We used to go to the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC for the shows they had on a regular basis when I was younger. I saw a version of MacBeth directed by Teller (of Penn & Teller) and it was fantastic. Very Happy

Did he use magic tricks and illusion to aid the story telling given the subject matter. Did his witches vanish into the air as the text implies?

Macbeth is also my favourite Shakespeare play.

Unfortunately I don't remember exactly because I saw it about four years ago.  My clearest memory is that of sword-wielding soldiers running up and down the aisles on the main floor as the play began.

Edit: looks like he did, but true to form he doesn't say how. Mad >link<

I'd have loved to have seen that. There isnt much in the way of live Shakespeare in my neck of the woods sadly. Ive only ever seen four Shakespeare plays performed live. Mad

The Folger library is an amazing space, perfectly atmospheric. I wish I had seen Shakespeare performed in it, only been to a period music concert.

Oh, I thought Norc was a shoe-in for Caliban - but come to think of it I often confuse Caliban with Ariel and Ariel with Puck from a Midsummer's Night Dream. It's embarrassing.

Orwell has to be Caliban, Odo as Prospero, Norc as Ariel, Figgy as Miranda, etc.

I thought of Figgy for Miranda, but given the youthful age of the characters and the love interests it seemed better suited to Norc/Eldo in those roles, plus I am already chuckling at some of Miranda's lines with a Norc spin. CC (wherever she has got to) for Ariel I think.

What? Mirandas meant t be about 14 or 15 in the original play. That side of the story is very much about youth. So makes sense to me to cast Forumshire folks in the younger age bracket for those characters.
For the same reason I wouldnt pick myself, or Halfy, or Dave for Ferdinand either.
No comment on anyone beyond that thought was meant.

just a heads up for future reference. Any woman over the age of 35 is touchy about the Age thing. It gets on our tits and makes us grouchy and huffy, this will save you a lot of time and effort explaining, excusing, de-huffing and in extreme circumstances, pleading . Here to help. Rolling Eyes

I guess its hard for men to understand the shit we have to put up with. In Italy its glaringly obvious, all, (and I do mean all), women still fertile are expected to truss themselves up like prize turkeys for the viewing pleasure of men. All women are expected to wear makeup, heels and look good. Only after the menopause are women allowed to wear black and become fat. There is a demarcation line set in stone. Its like there are two tribes of women, before and after, its weird. In England the boundaries are more fluid and free, theres more rebellion against old stereotypes, 60 year olds in jeans that kind of thing, but here in Italy its medieval and it sucks. When the time comes the fuck I am wearing black.

Be not afeard; the isle is full of noises,
Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.
Sometimes a thousand twangling instruments
Will hum about mine ears; and sometime voices
That, if I then had waked after long sleep,
Will make me sleep again; and then in dreaming,
The clouds methought would open, and show riches
Ready to drop upon me, that when I waked
I cried to dream again.


It all makes sense now - after a fashion - and, yet, what abitter pill it is!
