Utah Shakespearean Festival presents Macbeth, directed by Festival Education Director Michael Don Bahr. The play is one the greatest and darkest of Shakespeare's eleven tragedies, presenting a powerful man's rise and fall from power. Alem Brhan and Barbara Suiter are cast as Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, the latter delivering the famous line, "Out, damned spot! Out, I say!"
