Video 'Macbeth': theatre as life

TLF ID M018922

Shakespeare seems to be obsessed with using theatre as a metaphor for life, as the imagery of playacting and performance features in many of his plays. Hear what Bell Shakespeare's Ivan Donato and John Bell have to say about this symbolism in Macbeth's final soliloquy. As you watch, consider the life lessons that Macbeth - and therefore the audience - learns from his 'hour upon the stage'.
