MACBETH by William Shakespeare
October 13, 14, 20, 21, 27, 28 | 7.30pm
October 15, 22, 29 | 4.30pm
Imagine a group of traveling storytellers arriving in town, staging the classics by lamplight, and leaving for another town to repeat the process the next night. Every night of our performance, a handful of actors will create an intimate playing area amongst the audience and explain the rules: every actor has memorized the entire text, no actor will play the same character two scenes in a row, at certain points the audience could be pulled into a scene, and roles will be traded, taken, or given at the drop of a hat, sometimes literally. The audience will choose who starts the rotation, so it is impossible to see the same show more than once, and the nature of the performance heightens the sense of danger and energy in Shakespeare's tale of betrayal and madness.
$12 for general admission / $5 for students
The final Saturday, October 28, we will have a talkback after the show where the audience is invited to enjoy wine and cheese while discussing the show with the cast and crew.
