Lady Macbeth

Sun 11 Feb 2018, 13:00

Depot Lewes

Two screenings and two versions of Lady Macbeth

First is the première of an intense fifteen minute version of Shakespeare's play from Lady Macbeth's point of view ... her bloody nightmare. It will be introduced by co-director Christopher Ettridge and followed by a brief Q&A with directors and cast.

Second, William Oldroyd's acclaimed film (Lady Macbeth, 2017) set in rural England, 1865. Katherine is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a worker on her husband's estate, a powerful force is unleashed within her and she stops at nothing to fulfil her desires.

This gripping drama  explores complex themes of sexuality, oppression and murder.

After a half hour break for refreshments, you are invited back for a panel discussion - with audience comments and questions - on the emotional and psychological themes of both films. On the panel will be psychoanalytic psychotherapist Jenny Leeburn; forensic psychiatrist Dr Jake Harvey; Jungian analyst and psychoanalytic psychotherapist (Bpf), Carol Leader; director/actor Christopher Ettridge and actor Emily Tucker.

Why not come early to experience Depot's increasingly popular Sunday Brunch live music sessions? Doors open for brunch (see menu) at 10am with live music from 11am. The event will finish at approximately 4.50pm.

We have negotiated with the Depot to let us have Screen 1 for the entire afternoon which means that there is a single booking ticket for the films and discussion.

Please try to book early. Some people were disappointed last time not to get in.
