Scotweek just announced that our favorite Supernatural witch and Queen of Hell, Ruth Connell, will be part of their production of Shakespeare’s MacBeth. Connell will play Lady MacDuff.
Scotweek is a non-profit cultural organization, who host events every April promoting Scottish culture in film, television, music, art, sports, etc… The 2020 program includes a parade of pipe bands, a red-carpet Gala, a production of MacBeth, a music festival and ScotCon.
MacBeth’s representation will take place on April 11 at 7pm at the Moss Theater in Santa Monica.
Connell joins Harry Hamlin (MacBeth), Julia Ormond (Lady MacBeth), Graham McTavish (MacDuff), Jane Brucker (Witch), Kelsey Deanne (Witch), Silvester McCoy (The Porter). The play will be directed by Louis Fantasia.
Scotweek describes The Scottish Plays as follows:
A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death.
Scotweek is set to take place on April 9-19 in Los Angeles. You can find more information on all the events here.
