Snout – Tinker, Prop Maker, Player.
Snout loves Theatre. It has revolutionised how she perceives herself and the world and as such her zeal makes her into a bit of a theatre bore. However it has also meant her talent and graft has transformed her performance. Not so, her patience which is sorely tried with the others not taking it as seriously as she does.
She is cast in a variety of roles and for the Criterion Theatre is playing Lady Macbeth and Witch One.
Snout is played by Francesca Burgoyne.
Bottom – Weaver, Player, Director.
Bottom has been entirely swept up in the play and his character. He sees himself and his destiny in the role of Macbeth and this show is the chance of a lifetime to proclaim himself the Greatest of Actors. This is a big responsibility and he is determined that the play should succeed in the way he envisions – whatever the personal cost to his friends.
He is playing only Macbeth.
Bottom is played by Jackson Pentland.
A extract of Mechanicals’ Macbeth is being performed as part of the Criterion New Writing Showcase at the Criterion Theatre from 2pm, Monday 20th November.
