Widely acknowledged as one of William Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies, MACBETH is a story of murder corruption and deceit. The tale of Macbeth is also one of pure evil— and the pursuit of power as potent today as it was in ancient Scotland. Macbeth depicts the struggle between honor and ambition, good and evil as the witches tempt Macbeth with ultimate power and the cunning Lady Macbeth prods him to murder. In time paranoia evolves and Macbeth discovers that power achieved by bloodshed can only be maintained by more bloodshed. The production will run August 15-31. Thomas F. Bradac will direct.
