“When shall we three meet again?” Simple words begin Shakespeare’s tragedy. At the height of his poetic and dramatic powers, he evokes horrors natural and supernatural. James of Scotland, obsessed with witchcraft and demons, had become king of England. Conspiracy was rife. How timely to conjure a medieval Scottish king and his wife, witches included, into full dramatic life. As with all “off the pagers,” we attempt to bring the play to life: getting those wonderful words into our mouths, finding action, character, time, and place. Prepare to get out of your seats to see what the playwright tells us to do.
