You're invited to Macbeth's Halloween party!
There you'll find the Porter of Hell gate, floating daggers, and the ghosts of misdeeds back for a haunting all while dressed in their finest Halloween costumes!
Arrive prepared to see a tale that explores morality and traverses the duality of Shakespeare's spookiest play! "Double, double, toil and trouble,
Fire burn and cauldron bubble."
This production of Macbeth brings the play into 2020 and sets it at a Halloween party where the witches, spells, ghosts, and floating daggers seem to settle quite nicely into their new home. The Halloween theme pushes the already spooky vibes of this tragedy while the modern framing allows the characters to delve farther into the consequences of their actions without having to translate the politics of 1606 when Macbeth was first performed. The choice to perform Macbeth during our current pandemic feels hauntingly right since it is suspected that Shakespeare wrote Macbeth during his own time quarantined from pestilence. Be prepared to see a tale that explores morality and duality by watching the contrast of Macbeth and Banquo take separate paths, by listening to the witches speak in a "double sense," and by feeling the realms of reality and nightmares blend on this Hallows' Eve.
