Macbeth By William Shakespeare Adapted by R. Andrew Aguilar Directed by Rey Torres Performance dates: March 1-3 and 8-11 Rehearsals will start in early January; please know any conflicts you’ll have between then and performances.
SYNOPSIS A war hero is told that he is destined to be king by three witches. He conveys this information to his wife who doubles his ambition and sets forward a string of bloody events. We see a seemingly good man become infected by his environment and lead down a path of moral destruction. Macbeth is crowned king, but along with it comes corruption, murder, guilt, paranoia, and the eventual downfall of the Macbeths.
CAST * PLEASE NOTE: Macbeth is already cast. * Everyone aside from Macbeth and Lady Macbeth will be a part of the witches (who are played by multiple people) and company, the only time Lady M joins the witches is at the very end. Gender blending is encouraged, with the ideal cast below. Age is of no consequence, since the play is highly suggestive.
