Macbeth  | Open: 03/02/05 Close: 03/19/05 - Impact Theatre
Presented in a modern-day vision, the characters of the play are depicted as members of the Scotland Mob, a fictional 21st century crime family similar to known criminal organizations of our time. The thanes and knights are still vicious, merciless killers, but use baseball bats and guns instead of swords and crossbows, and dress in two-piece suits instead of metal armor.

Although this text was originally set in a war torn pre-Renaissance Scotland, there are many comparisons between the political in-fighting, betrayal, and ambition to get ahead by any means necessary of then and now. This vision is not meant to detract from the story or the language, but rather bring to life this classic text into our reality with cultural icons.
