Mocbeth - Macbeth Set in Uganda in the 70s


“Mocbet,” Peres Owino’s and Marc Ewing’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth,” takes the story of the tragically ambitious warrior who murdered his way up to become the absolute power of his country and transposes the action from medieval Scotland to the Uganda of the 1970s.

About The Robey Theatre Company:
http://www.robeytheatrecompany.com/ click on History:
Paul Robeson (1898-1976) is the inspiration for the Robey Theatre Company (Robey). A man of mythic proportions, his achievements are the stuff of legends. Paul won a scholarship to New Jersey's Rutgers University, gaining Phi Beta Kappa honors in his junior year and lettering in track, basketball and baseball. Robeson was the first Black All-American football player, a leading international concert singer for 35 years, a musicologist, an accomplished stage and screen actor, the first Black lawyer to enter one of New York's most prestigious law firms, a linguist, scholar, orator and an uncompromising political activist. Paul Robeson's artistry and genius, together with his indomitable courage, established him as one of our greatest American Renaissance men.

The Robey Theatre Company was founded in December 1994 by Danny Glover and Bennet Guillory to fill a void of opportunity for Black theatre artists. Artists of color, particularly Black playwrights, have long lacked a forum where their work can be developed in collaboration with their peers. Black audiences have had insufficient opportunity to hear these voices in an ongoing basis and their unique expression of the culture. Robey was founded to fulfill this need.
