Val McDermid Queen Macbeth: Darkland Tales

Friday 3 May 2024

Crowne Plaza Hotel

In the depths of 11th century Scotland, we meet Gruoch Ingen Boite, a granddaughter of the king, caught up in a web of vicious intrigue. Set against a dramatic highland backdrop, one of the country’s most beloved and bestselling crime writers weaves a tale of marriage and multiple murder, showing how one strong, charismatic woman, shaped by hard times, was able to survive - and thrive - amidst the endless plotting of a succession of ruthless and ambitious men. Overturning Shakespeare's propaganda, she’ll introduce a new Lady Macbeth, bringing a schemer in the shadows out into the light and exposing the patriarchal prejudices of history.
