Macbeth follows the title Scottish general, who receives a prophecy from three witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the throne. He soon becomes a tyrannical ruler and commits several murders to protect himself. The bloodbath takes Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into realms of arrogance, madness and death.
About the Show
Shakespeare’s classic tale of ambition and treachery gets a thrilling new life on the Live Oak Theater stage. Jonathan Caro and Hannah Satterlee star as the once great leader and his adored wife, who incites him to sell his soul in the quest for greater power.
Director Andrew Cummings once again transforms the Live Oak stage into an intimate three quarter thrust arrangement, bringing to life one of Shakespeare’s most powerful tragedies in an intensely physical, fast-paced production that places the audience directly on the sidelines of battle. Blood, sweat, and the elements of nature can be directly felt as the action unfurls across the stage, with heaven beckoning at one end and hell looming at the other.
