by William Shakespeare

The Play

Something wicked this way comes. Driven by ambition, Macbeth struggles with his conscience and chooses a tragic path. This 75-minute abridged production one of the most powerful plays in the canon is a perfect introduction to Shakespeare. It tells a story of political intrigue and personal frailty as Macbeth and his Lady struggle first with their ambition, and then with its dark consequences. A theatrical world of action, sound and the supernatural makes Shakespeare’s language come alive. After the performance, the actors remain on stage for a question-and-answer session, then join the audience in the Lobby for informal conversations and photos.

A CST Family production most enjoyed by ages 10 and up.
