Theatre In The Park Brings Shakespeare Back With MACBETH


Shakespeare returns to Theatre In The Park with the production of one of The Bard's most famous tragedies, Macbeth, February 5th - 16th.

"Fair is foul, foul is fair." Power. Greed. Madness. A masterpiece of tragedy, amid the violence and war torn locales and characters, Shakespeare offers frightening and astonishing insights into the passion for political and military power, and the consequences of corrupting power and ambition unchecked by morality or conscience.

Ira David Wood III directs a modern spin on this tale of unchecked ambition, setting the play in a post-apocalyptic world and utilizing multimedia as well as embracing the theatre's oldest tradition of performing in masks.

Featuring Ira David Wood III as Macbeth and Lynda Clark as the conniving Lady Macbeth, this Theatre In The Park production will excite and frighten Shakespeare lovers and laymen alike.

Also featuring: Kurt Benrud, Jackson Bloom, Paul Brown, Rita Coby, Janis Coville, Meg Dietrich, John T. "Jack" Hall, James Miller, Michael Murray, Thomas Porter, Harvey Sage, Antione Stanley, Randall Stanton, Jason Weeks, Samuel Whisnant, Ira David Wood IV.
