Alexandra Afryea – Macbeth
Alexandra starred as multiple characters in Proteus Theatre’s Macbeth, directed by Proteus’ artistic director Mary Swan, and opened with two performances at the Basingstoke Haymarket on the 14th and 16th of March and was followed by two more at Jacksons Lane on the 21st & 22nd.
Swapping Medieval Scotland for the trading floors of the 1980s, this modern adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic transforms the iconic cautionary tale about the pitfalls of ambition over morals into a gripping corporate thriller.
Set to an electrifying 80s soundtrack blending modern classics and original tracks, it addresses how the government under Margaret Thatcher allowed mammoth corporations to act so far above the law – similar to the feuding Thanes of Scotland.
As the old mantra goes Greed may be Good but how long until that ruthless drive for wealth consumes all that one holds dear?
