The National Theatre of Scotland returns to the Shakespeare Theatre Company with David Greig's Dunsinane
. Written by a Scot and set after Malcolm defeats Macbeth in the Battle of Dunsinane, the play examines the struggle of an invader to grasp local customs and politics while trying to restore order. While the commanding officer Siward tries to install a new ruler, the English army is beset by a brutal guerrilla uprising and growing discontent amongst the troops. Greig's work provides an analogy to the nation-building attempts in Afghanistan and Iraq, giving dramatic perspective to contemporary events.
