SCOTTISH PLAY

10 F

45 minutes

Bridget has one last chance to pass English class by staging an all-female version of Macbeth, Act I. But what starts out as a simple project turns out to be more toil—and far more trouble—than she ever expected. Her actresses fall prey to superstition, including a nagging suspicion that one of their own is a real witch. As rehearsal time wanes and personalities collide, the biggest curse may be a group of girls with murderous intent toward each other. How many times can they break the curse before the play just falls apart?

Open Rehearsal with The Artful Conspirators (Artistic Director David A. Miller; Rehearsal Manager Dano Madden), Brooklyn, NY, October 2012. Directed by Miriam Weiner.
