The horror effects that Shakespeare intended to communicate through his play, Macbeth, pale into insignificance when we witness the truly awful acting of Trevor Kervis' amateur theatre production. In this program, the roles of minor characters are explored in terms of their effects on the delivery of the themes of the play. Trevor's production is a tragedy in every sense.
Never before has Shakespeare's 'Scottish play' been performed quite like this. Trevor Kervis, director unextraordinaire, strikes again in this farcical look at the dramatic techniques in Macbeth that have made it a favourite among thespians since Elizabethan times. Students will enjoy the quirky characters and upbeat analysis that feature in the program. If 'all the world's a stage' then Trevor Kervis must be the clown.
