Macbeth

The Scene

After the opening scenes in Greyfriars Kirkyard, the performers (and audience) moved to James Court, then to a close further down the Royal Mile near St Giles Church for a banquet where this photo was taken.  It was here that Macbeth heard of the death of the King.

The Performers

Frantic Redhead Productions has two "walking plays" in the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, 2007.  For these plays, the audience follows the cast around the streets and closes of Edinburgh.

- Macbeth, (The Scottish Play) has been performed here  for many years.

- Sherlock Holmes Murder in the Gardens is a world premier in 2007.

I felt that Edinburgh made an ideal backdrop to productions such as these.

Frantic Redhead's Producer, Ginger Perkins of Los Angeles, has been presenting theatre, music, dance and art at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for the past twenty-five years.   However, 2007 is to be her final year in this role.
