FIRST PRODUCTION BY AN ALL-AMERICAN TEAM

DUNSINANE by David Greig

Co-Directed by Jasson Minadakis and Rob Lutfy

Produced in partnership with Tamalpais High School’s Conservatory Theatre Ensemble

September 22 - October 16, 2022

Opening our season with its first production by an all-American team, Greig’s work continues the story of Shakespeare's Macbeth and the war for Scotland's throne, featuring an all-star ensemble cast of actors comprised of Bay Area favorites, newcomers, and student professionals. This captivating, imagined sequel explores one man's attempt to restore peace in a country consumed by war. Macbeth rules with an iron fist. Under cover of night, the English army must sweep in, kill the tyrant, and claim Scotland's seat of power. But efforts to restore order appear futile as the situation spins out of control. Fierce one minute and funny the next, Scottish playwright David Greig's extraordinary ability to infuse a dark story with rich humor results in a lively, vital examination of power—illuminating uncanny parallels between Scotland's medieval and present-day political landscapes around the world. Last seen in the U.S. on its 2015 tour by the National Theatre of Scotland and the Royal Shakespeare Company, this play will be produced by MTC in our first partnership with Tamalpais High School’s Conservatory Theatre Ensemble, allowing us to stage a two-part epic in two theatres blocks apart in Mill Valley.
