Photo Flash: Exclusive Showing of Royal Shakespeare Company Production of MACBETH in Jaffrey
The River Street Theatre (RST), a project of Jaffrey's Park Theatre, will be exclusively presenting the Royal Shakespeare Company's (RSC) new production of Shakespeare's Macbeth on Sunday, May 6 and Wednesday, May 9 (both at 2 PM). The presentation is part of the RST's Stage2Screen Series.
Returning home from battle, the victorious Macbeth meets three witches on the heath. Driven by their disturbing prophecies, he sets out on the path to murder.
The RSC's contemporary production of Shakespeare's darkest psychological thriller marks both Christopher Eccleston's (Doctor Who, Let Him Have It, Shallow Grave, The Leftovers) RSC debut and the return of Niamh Cusack (Hereafter, Rebellion, Always and Everyone) as Lady Macbeth to the company.
This production of Macbeth was captured in ultra-high definition at the RSC Theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, England on April 11, 2018.
Tickets for Macbeth are $20 each (students & teachers $15).

The new River Street Theatre (or RST) is a project of The Park Theatre. In anticipation of the construction and opening of the new Park Theatre performing arts center, the RST is a small, intimate venue to "bridge" the construction project until the new theatre complex opens. The RST boasts only 28 seats, but it has new, extremely comfortable & upholstered wide seating, HD digital projection plus the best concessions around. Every week the RST presents new independent films, inspiring and educational documentaries, fresh foreign films, ParkKIDS films for children and classic films from Hitchcock to the Coen Brothers. Stage2Screen event cinema includes HD screenings of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Kenneth Branagh Theatre Live, Stratford Festival, StageRussia and The Royal Opera & Royal Ballet. Finally, for live programming, the RST presents plays, music, stand-up comedy, magicians, and readings. It makes the claim, "New England's Smallest Theatre... and proud of it." The RST promises programming that is always entertaining, innovative and fresh. Located at the heart of New Hampshire's Mount Monadnock, the RST is a 95-minute drive from downtown Boston.
The Park Theatre first opened in Jaffrey in 1922 and was the center of community life as a movie and vaudeville house for 54 years until it closed in 1976. Purchased by The Park Theatre, Inc. in 2006, it will be rebuilt as a state-of-the-art film and performing arts center, featuring two auditoriums seating 485, presenting movies, live theatre (including children's productions), concerts, and lectures as well as offering a place for business and community gatherings for the Monadnock Region and its 100,000 residents, school districts and dynamic artistic community. The new theatre is scheduled to begin construction in 2018.
