Lady Macbeth In Souliloquy.

Lady Macbeth In Souliloquy.
By Tilly Lunken
After William Shakespeare’s Macbeth

Lady Macbeth In Souliloquy was directed by Victorine Pontillon for Cycle One of In Souliloquy. 
It was performed by Francesca Burgoyne.

In Souliloquy is co-devised and produced by Tilly Lunken and Victorine Pontillon.

In the play Lady Macbeth is hugely ambitious and influences her husband. We hear a lot from her as she plots and steels herself for what is to come and then less and less as the Macbeth’s lives unravel. She dies offstage a footnote to her husband’s end.

Our Lady Macbeth rises to meet the suspicion around the “Scottish Play” and how she is always read as the greater villain to her husband. She was the first one I wrote and she was such fun to explore, I think there is so much in how absent she becomes in the play versus the vitriol her character receives today in literary and theatre studies. 

This monologue engages us, it engages her past, her present and her future, it engages literary criticism and theatrical superstition and it arrests us because Fran is Lady Macbeth. She is here, and as she is talking - we listen.
