About this show

Macbeth meets HBO in Roust Theatre Company's contemporary adaptation of Shakespeare's classic: set against the backdrop of a dangerous, sinister underworld -- where power, money, and suspicion are all mixed in a boiling pot with lust, vice and murder. Moral lines are blurred, perhaps non-existent. There's a good dose of sex, torture, under-age prostitution and biological manipulation to create a more efficient killing machine. This nihilistic tale tells of one soldier's violent rise to power through the ranks of a mercenary army. Twisted by fate and a power-hungry spouse, Macbeth shows us the ravaging and tangible effects of fear, the destructive impact of own nature's dark forces through senseless, unjustified killing. A limited number of $10.00 tickets will be available for three performances only: Wednesday, November 26 at 8pm; Friday, November 28 at 8pm and Saturday, November 29 at 8pm. $10.00 tickets are available at the box office only, 30 minutes prior to curtain, and subject to availability.
