Dunsinane’s emerging power couple develops a spiraling lust for dominion, losing their humanity inch by inch until they’re numbed to the taste of blood. Yet for all the savagery that comes with stealing a kingdom, their story is a tragic one. A tale of friendship betrayed. Of a great love wasted. It’s haunting and fluid; poetic and gritty, more a staged psychological journey than a play. It’s been 13 years since this thriller came our way. With this cast, its return will be nothing short of spectacular.
Runs June 21 – October 4. Opening night June 29.
FEATURING Tracy Michelle Arnold, David Daniel, Phoebe González, Gavin Lawrence, Cristina Panfilio, Melisa Pereyra, Laura Rook, Triney Sandoval, Marcus Truschinski
Our favorite Shakespearean super-villain couple makes their first visit to the Hill in 15 years. Fresh off a great military victory, brave Macbeth returns home to a new title, bestowed upon him by good King Duncan. But after a run-in with a trio of witches, Macbeth thinks he can do better than Thane of Cawdor. With support from his Lady, Macbeth decides that King of Scotland has a nice ring to it. So when Duncan pays a visit, blood begins to spill and it doesn’t stop until the searing conclusion. One of the greatest plays in the Bard’s arsenal.
