Hudson Shakespeare Co. presents MacbethAdult Events 10/17/2017, 7:00 PM Main Library – Auditorium
I have no spur
To prick the sides of my intent, but only
Vaulting ambition, which o’erleaps itself
And falls on the other.
Shakespeare’s eerie tale about the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. A brave Scottish general named Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders King Duncan and takes the Scottish throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia. Forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion, he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take Macbeth and Lady Macbeth into the realms of madness and death.
Attendees will have a chance to win tickets to Twelfth Night at MSU’s Alexander Kasser Theater. Registration recommended. For more information, call 973-744-0500 ext. 2235.Click here for more details...
