THIS EVENT ENDED ON THE 6TH MARCH 2010
Dunsinane is one of three new productions to be brought to London by the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) between December 2009 and April 2010. Following their staging of Twelfth Night at the Duke of York's theatre, where Richard Wilson made his RSC debut, the RSC premieres two new plays at Hampstead Theatre in February and March 2010. The first of these is Dunsinane, a new play by Scottish playwright David Greig, whose play with music, Midsummer, was one of the hits of the 2009 Edinburgh Festival. The setting is eleventh century Scotland, following the death of Macbeth, when the fight for the Scottish throne has seen an English army taking the seat of power. The commanding officer struggles to keep the situation under control, facing enemies on all sides, even among his own soldiers, and finds himself drawn towards the tyrant's widow. This has all the ingredients to be a powerful play, with RSC Associate Director Roxana Silbert, previously been Artistic Director of Paines Plough, directing her first production for the company.
