Macbeth in the park

Bard in the Barracks takes over Fredericton green space to retell tragic tale. By Kyle Mullin for New Brunswick’s Telegraph Journal, June 22 2010.

Witches are haunting Fredericton’s Odell Park, and theatre lovers can partake in the nuanced séance this summer as Bard in the Barracks unleashes its rendition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth.

A conventional stage has been replaced by the park’s darkest, most barren corners. Strangely sensual sorceresses prowl around the park, scaling the trees like spiders and scurrying around and amongst the audience to hiss their lines. They lead those viewers through the forest, from one scene to the next not merely to watch a play but to stand nearly face-to-face with the players and breathe in the tension they create.
