Witches and thanes and kings, oh my! Prophecy leads Macbeth, the thane of Glamis, down a slope slippery with royal blood. But prophecy comes with a price far higher than he anticipates. Macbeth and his Lady must face down visions, ghosts, and madness in their quest for power. Beware the wood that walks and the man not born of woman when you seek a throne through blood.
Backyard Bard, born out of a desire to bring Shakespeare to smaller parks and new audiences in underserved neighborhoods, presents two stripped-down productions of Shakespeare’s plays, each an hour long. Both are performed by a small ensemble of versatile actors, directed by Sarah Stillion.
