Shakespeare in the Park - Macbeth

By William Shakespeare

Presented by Shakespeare Dallas

Runs October 3-7, and October 10-14, in Addison Circle Park--all performances begin at 8:00pm.

This brutal tragedy of Macbeth opens amidst a storm, with three witches setting the mood with mystery and haunting prophesies. It is announced that the heroic Macbeth has defeated the enemies of Scotland and he is praised for his bravery. On Macbeth's journey home, he encounters theThree Witches, and they tell him their prophesies, eventually calling him King. Macbeth is doubtful, but as they begin to come true, he decides he will stop at nothing to become King. After hearing the prophesies, Lady Macbeth decides that they must secure their royal fate by murdering King Duncan. Guilt turns into madness, as Macbeth and his wife are haunted by the ghosts of their recent victims. Greed turns into more bloodshed, and a battle embarks to determine the righteous King. One of Shakespeare's most famous tragedies, Macbeth takes us on a murderous and wicked journey of war, the lust for power,guilt and death.
