Abstract:

Now ensconced as artistic director of the New Burbage theatre festival, Geoffrey Tennant must stage the cursed play Macbeth to fulfill the vision of his deceased predecessor Oliver Welles. The actor cast in the lead engages in a titanic clash of egos with Geoffrey, while Oliver weighs in confrontationally from the grave. The festival faces a financial crisis that forces its CEO to engage in some risky business, while leading lady Ellen Fanshaw endures a life-altering tax audit. Adding to the mayhem is the return of the madcap guest director Darren Nichols, who stages a post-post-modern Romeo and Juliet after the original director breaks her neck. Could it be the curse of Macbeth?
