Episode 182. The Scottish Play

Published by austin on

Jennifer Lee Carell‘s new mystery Haunt Me Still (aka The Shakespeare Curse outside the US) deals with the legends surrounding the manuscript and supposed curse of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth, or as it’s known euphemistically in the theatre world, “the Scottish Play”. Featuring the difference between knowledge and superstition, Shakespeare’s fascination with the dark side, possible explanations for the source of Shakespeare’s genius, a special contrasting appearance by NPR science correspondent Richard Harris, and modern revelry in ancient mystery.
