Lady Macbeth Played Wing Defence

9 - 12 September 2024 Subiaco Arts Centre, Main Auditorium

Presented by Crash Theatre Company

Lady Macbeth Played Wing Defence is an original musical that delves deep into the dangerous realms of unchecked ambition while highlighting the fierce determination and competitive spirit of teenage girls on the netball court.

This energetic production breathes new life into a literary classic, fuelled by an electrifying soundscape of pop-synth compositions created by award-winning artist & musician Project BEXX. Step onto the court of this contemporary turmoil that entangles the timeless allure of Shakespearean drama with a multidisciplinary experience of music, dance and theatre, presented by an all-female powerhouse team of Western Australian artists.

In a thrilling Shakespearean twist on the netball court, Mac Beth passionately pursues the coveted title of Year 12 Netball Captain of the Dunsinane Hell Hounds. Expect a gripping tale of ambition, betrayal, and redemption as Coach Duncan’s decisions spark a fierce battle for leadership. The Dagger Divas, a trio of dreamy melodies, visit Mac in her slumbers to echo the bard’s famous ghostly encounters. As alliances shift and friendships fracture, a climactic showdown awaits the netball battlefield.

The musical’s narrative reverberates with stories of resilience, ambition, and fierce competition, challenging outdated stereotypes but also igniting a fervour of inspiration among the next generation of female athletes, arming them with a suite of powerful and catchy anthems to rally behind.
