Macbeth promotional image

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Mary Mayo

Do we have good and evil within us? How do we navigate by our inner moral compass? Foretold of his kingship, Macbeth—reimagined as three figures—sets out to claim the throne and keep it in his grasp. Mary Mayo’s production of Shakespeare’s classic draws forth the influences on our decision-making and offers a fresh embodied exploration of Macbeth’s tragic fall from grace.

Please be advised this performance includes the use of haze and includes scenes portraying violence, death onstage, violence against a child, and death of a child onstage.

We invite you to explore our Virtual Lobby to learn more about the cast, creative team, crew, and a note from the director.
