Artist Playground proudly presents a breakthrough rare theatrical treat with ‘M EPISODES’ --- a two-in-one experience about Macbeth, one of the most famous tragic characters during the Renaissance period.

Synopsis: Once there were three people thrown together by ambition, the pursuit of happiness, and passion both youthfulness and maturity share. A decade or so later, they meet again. What was done is now recalled, what was promised is now collected, and what was taken away is now reclaimed. 

Directed by Roeder Camanag, ‘M EPISODES’ will take audiences to an in-depth view of Macbeth’s world and witness every episode that formed his psyche in two acts. 

Act I: James Chalmers’ “PRELUDE TO MACBETH” introduces us to Lorna Stewart, Macbeth, Thane of Glamis, and Duncan, King of Scotland for the first time.

Act II: William Shakespeare’s “MACBETH” returns to us the three characters, Macbeth now about to be Thane of Cawdor, and Lorna Stewart, now Lady Macbeth. 
The Past now spurs a huge cloud of malice, malignancy, and murderous plots. All in the name of the golden round.

The cast are as follows: 
Prelude to Macbeth - Paul Jake Paule (Macbeth), Jernice Matunan (Lorna), Mariella Munji Laurel (Lorna), Mitoy Sta. Ana and Andre Tiangco (Duncan), Juan Carlo Martin Pacheco and Vincent Pajara (Callum), Tasha Guerrero, Marjorie Duldulao, Princess Tuason, Kia Del Rosario, Jeremy Cabansag (Spirits 1,2,3);
