Artistic director Sean Lewis’s radical re-interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic uses a small cast to tell the story of Macbeth,
an ambitious general in a country where strife runs as far back as memory. Three witches promise Macbeth will wear the crown of Scotland if he has the guts to take down the king. Propped up by his brilliant wife, he succeeds in the dastardly deed—but then what? With the witches—here, a group of women left nationless by conflict, who have no way to end the bloodshed but by taking down the unstoppable warrior Macbeth—we enter a world of passion, intrigue, macabre strategy, and magic. Accessible and thrilling, sophisticated and primal, this MACBETH revisits a time-old tale of power, weaving a ghost story fit for any starry summer night.
