Abstract

In this thesis I will be discussing my process in preparing and performing the role of Lady Macbeth, and how I used the parallels of the King James Bible to approach the text. I will show how this method will allow theatre people to teach Shakespeare to African Americans in a way that will become second nature to grasp. I will include the events of the play, my character analysis, intake on the rehearsal process, production photos, resume, headshot, program, and a link to my website.
