Dunsinane, by David Greig
Peterborough Mask Theatre’s latest play
Dunsinane is set in Scotland and takes place just after the death of ‘Macbeth’. It follows Siward, Earl of Northumberland, as he faces the challenges of leading an English occupying force and keeping the peace in a country split by warring clans. Malcolm is not the strong king that Scotland needs and ‘Lady Macbeth’, who is known by her Gaelic name – Gruach, is very much alive and fighting for her son’s right to the throne.
‘a work of compelling intelligence, provocation and wit’
