Macbeth

This is Dillon’s second season with Inebriated Shakespeare and they are OVERJOYED to be performing with the gang once more. Dillon is an improviser, actor, stand-up, sketch writer, and dungeon master who LOVES telling stories and doing bits with their friends. When they’re not telling jokes at Third Coast Comedy Club, you can find Dillon trying to relax with Asa (Their wife) and Jolene (a dog). Buy Dillon shots and see how meta they get!

His favorites have been Conrad Jarrett in Ordinary People, Eilert Lovborg in Hedda Gabler, & Orcus in She Kills Monsters. He thanks Angela, MacKenzie, and the rest of this awesome cast for the chance to be part of this incredible production. Logan hopes that each of you enjoys this amazing show!

Ross/Servant/Fake Blood Guy

Riley is excited to be returning to Inebriated Shakespeare for another fun season. Riley received his bachelor’s in Theater and Cinema at Missouri Western State University with a concentration in performance and directing/writing. Some of his credits include Lennie in Of Mice & Men, Jake in Evil Dead: The Musical, and Drewy Bell in Spirit: Story of of the Bell Witch, Don Pedro in Much Ado About Nothing, Peter Quince in A Midsummer Nights Dream, Rosencrantz/Guildenstern in Hamlet, and many more. Riley would like to dedicate this season to his uncle Michael “Butch” Bayer.

Storm Sloan

Macduff/Witch

Storm is super excited to be back drinking and doing some Shakespeare. She is a local theatre and film artist, so if she looks familiar, you might have seen her out and about. Maybe as Gertrude in Hamlet here with Inebriated Shakes last season. Or traipsing along some corner of Nashville, either is likely. To keep up with her latest shenanigans and projects, follow any of her socials @thestormsloan.

Fleance/Donalbain/Witch

Kelsie joins Inebriated Shakespeare for a second time and is thrilled to be a part of the cast. She’s acted previously but it’s been a while so she’s ready to be back in the swing of things. When not acting Kelsie enjoys long walks with her dogs and spending way too much time on social media.

Angela Gimlin

Lady Macbeth

Angela is an Inebriated Shakespeare veteran, being with the company since the beginning. She is a huge fan of improv and, obviously, Shakespeare. Some of her favorite past roles include Queen Gertrude in Hamlet and Cecily in The Importance of Being Earnest. When she isn’t treading the boards, you can find her cheering on her two favorite teams – the Oklahoma Sooners and the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Bryan Royals

King Duncan/Lennox/Witch

Bryan is absolutely not excited whatsoever to be returning to a second Inebriated Shakespeare production. Bryan’s Shakespearian debut was technically a middle school production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream—pre-worldwide pandemic—he was the worst Lysander but a pretty decent fairy in the previous season. Other than that he was most recently seen on stage as Brad in The Rocky Horror Show and Josh in If/Then with Circle Players. Bryan has called Nashville home for just over three years, and while not getting drunk on stage you can follow @broyals on Instagram and Twitter for very unentertaining content.

Jared Taylor
Jared Taylor

Banquo/Soldier

Jared is a Middle Tennessee native that has been involved in theater since 2012. Some of his favorite roles from community theater productions are Charlie in You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown, Jesus in Godspell, and E. J. Lofgren in Harvey. This is his first year as a member of Inebriated Shakespeare and he is proud to take the stage next to this incredibly talented, if not slightly uncoordinated, band of players. He hopes you enjoy the show!

The Story

T

hree witches anticipate a meeting with Macbeth. King Duncan hears a report of how his generals Macbeth and Banquo defeated Norwegians and Scottish rebels in battle. The witches gather and meet the generals returning from the war. They predict Macbeth will become Thane (term for a high-ranking Scottish nobleman) of Cawdor, and one day king, and that Banquo will be the father of kings. Macbeth is then greatly impressed when he is greeted by Ross with the title of Cawdor.

Macbeth writes to his wife telling her of what has happened. Lady Macbeth, seeing the opportunity, plots with her husband how they might kill Duncan when he arrives for a visit. After initial enthusiasm, Macbeth changes his mind, but Lady Macbeth persuades him to carry out the deed. He murders Duncan, making it seem that the King’s servants were to blame and describes the scene to his wife. She finds herself having to return the daggers he has used to Duncan’s bedroom, and her hands become covered with blood. They retire when they hear repeated knocking at the castle gates.

Scottish nobleman Macduff (the Thane of Fife) arrives and discovers the dead king and rouses the castle. Malcolm and Donalbain, fearing blame for their father’s death, flee abroad. Soon after, Ross and Macduff reflect on what has happened, and Macduff reports that Macbeth has been made king.

Macbeth is concerned about his position, very aware of the prophecies about Banquo. He arranges with a murderer to kill Banquo and his daughter Fleance; they succeed with Banquo, but Fleance escapes. At a dinner that night, where Banquo would have been the chief guest, Macbeth is terrified by the appearance of his ghost. Macbeth decides to return to the witches to find out his fate. They tell him that he should fear Macduff, that no man born of woman can hurt Macbeth, and that he will never be vanquished until Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane (Macbeth’s castle). 

Macbeth learns that Macduff is fled to England, so he arranges the death of Macduff’s wife and children. Macduff meets Malcolm, who tests Macduff’s allegiance to Scotland by first painting a bleak picture of his own personality as a future king, then revealing his true character. They agree to fight together, with English support. During the meeting, Ross brings news of the murder of Macduff’s family. In Scotland, a servant observes Lady Macbeth going mad, imagining she cannot clean her hands of Duncan’s blood.

The Scottish nobles gather, and Malcolm orders his men to camouflage themselves with tree branches as they attack, thus giving the appearance of Birnam Wood approaching Dunsinane. Macbeth learns his wife has died. Fearing no man born of woman, Macbeth fights on, but upon meeting Macduff he learns of Macduff’s caesarian birth. Macbeth refuses to yield, is killed by Macduff, and Malcolm is proclaimed king.
