Adapted from William Shakespeare
Directed & Adapted by Eric Ting
Jan 18 – Feb 12, 2012
Shakespeare’s classic masterpiece gets a powerful and imaginative new look. Set in 1969, Macbeth and his best friend Banquo return home from war to discover that their world has changed. Recovering from their wounds, they find themselves wrestling with the aftermath of what they’ve seen and done. Their three attending nurses (recast from Shakespeare’s soothsaying witches) become a part of the hallucination and enact this vivid retelling of one of the greatest theatrical works in the English language.
“[Eric Ting] is perhaps one of the most gifted young directors in our midst …”
