Macbeth, which tells of the rise and fall of a dictator, is a play that’s always timely as up to the minute as radio news broadcast. The vivid action of Macbeth seems ready made for radio with a few adjustments. For example in the original play Banquo’s ghost when he comes to haunt Macbeth doesn’t say a word, a very impractical ghost for radio purposes so Theater Guild On The Air give him words as they bring you Macbeth adapted for radio theater.
Written by William Shakespeare (1606)
