A prophecy. A crown. A murder. William Shakespeare’s famous tragedy tells the story of Macbeth, a warrior-chief who meets three strange sisters on his way home from battle who tell him of a prophecy that could lead to unimaginable power. Aware of his duty but unable to ignore his vaulting ambition, he and his brilliant wife plot a murder. What follows may tear his fragile kingdom, and perhaps the world itself, apart.
Set in an apocalyptic waste beset by violence, greed, political corruption, and environmental crisis a place and time that could as easily be the Scotland of yesterday as the Canada of today, or any number of frighteningly possible tomorrows—the Electric City Players present William Shakespeare’s Macbeth in a way that seeks to highlight how this 400 year-old tragedy remains disturbingly familiar and relevant to our own world and moment.
