Surrender to a haunting story of ambition and its dark consequences, as a military hero and his wife conspire to seize the throne of Scotland. A visually traditional interpretation of the play. Promotional material focuses on the relationship between Macbeth and Lady Macbeth. It promises to be a bloody and bold affair.           

The Theatre has regularly scheduled "forums," throughout the run. These range from discussion panels, to tours, to hands-on workshops and presentations. Most are on site. For this production, the subjects are: "The Scottish Play - discussion with James Shapiro" on June 18th,"Unsex Me Here," on June 29th, "behind the Scenes" on August 21st, and "Table Talk - Alan Somerse" on August 25th. The aim to create discussion and conversation in the community about the festival's season and to encourage the spread of information and education.
