CTV’s Flashpoint actress Olunike Adeliyi has become William Shakespeare’s first Jamaican-Nigerian Lady Macbeth!
Adeliyi, who plays the strikingly fierce cop Leah Kerns in the TV series, takes on the leading female role at the Sterling Theatre in Toronto with William MacDonald as Macbeth. This modern revamp on one of Shakespeare’s most popular stories is easily understood by all, with modern text. “There are also a lot of surprises and the plot is changed up a bit.” said Adeliyi.
Audience members even get to wear some of the masks worn by the characters and get to see Adeliyi do some of her African dancing. The play is directed by acclaimed British director Sophie Ann Rooney and wraps up December 20th.
