WEDNESDAY, November 30th at 7:00pm: Selections from Shakespeare's "MacBeth"

The Seanchai Library celebrates November 30th, St Andrew's Day (patron Saint of Scotland), with a twist, presenting selections from Shakespeare's The Tragedy of MacBeth (generally known simply as Macbeth).  Inspired by accounts from Scottish history in Holinshed's Chronicles (1587), which would have been know to Shakespeare in his day, the events of the story actually have little relationship to their actual historical counterparts.   

MacBeth is less about Scotland and more a study of ambition, fate, and consequences.  "The Scottish Play" is Shakespeare's shortest tragedy, and is considered by many critics to be his most economically and tightly woven tale.

Presented in voice by Kayden Oconnell and Caledonia Skytower.
