WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Why is Shakespeare's "Scottish play" the perfect autumn thriller? It has it all! Deceit, intrigue, treachery, murder, backstabbing (literally!), plus witchcraft and ghosts give it the spine-chilling feel that gets you on the edge of your seat. Director Dan Hodge (of the acclaimed Philadelphia Artists Collective) promises a fast-moving production different than any other version you've seen. He's placed it just after the First World War at the birth of our modern world, a time when there was a high interest in the occult. But it's still the classic tale of a man and his wife, ambition, temptation, and the prophecies made by a trio of witches. The acclaimed Hedgerow stage and its bare stone walls provide the perfect backdrop for a spooky, bloody, war-torn world where "something wicked this way comes."
Shakespeare's dark and bloody thriller of ambition, guilt and revenge.
