This action-driven tragedy is enthusiastically endorsed by the entire Clayton State student cast. Thespians from Atlanta, Conyers, Morrow, Stockbridge and Fayetteville will, “entertain and make it easy to follow as we make Shakespeare’s work effortless to understand,” says Chicago native and performer Jessica Horne.
Actress Amanda Wilson said, “The play gives way to human nature; jealousy, pride, spitefulness and courage; all characteristics that make up a human each person deals with their own inner demons differently.”
Darius Booker, from Hinesville, Ga., shares that he is a lot like his character, Macbeth. Booker says, “I am valiant and I want to honor what’s right. Sometimes I have a desire for status and when I get it I want to ensure that I keep it.”
In addition to the performances of “Macbeth,” the Clayton State Theatre has also issued a “Macbeth Challenge” to Clayton State students, holding a contest to see who can think outside the box when it comes to “Macbeth.” The Theatre is looking for the best sonnet, monologue and/or video based off of the themes of “Macbeth” including, but not limited to “power, lust, betrayal, and of course, murder.”
