The Department of Visual and Performing Arts presents "Macbeth"
By William Shakespeare
Adapted by the Genesis Project
Directed by Richard J. Piatt, O.S.A.
What happens in a digital age where kings, king-makers, and the population itself suffer from an increasing paranoia about enemies, both foreign and home grown? Shakespeare’s classic drama about unbridled ambition and political machinations receives a fresh treatment by The Genesius Project (last season’s The 9/11 Effect). Presented in the original language and featuring a cast of students, alumni and associate actors of Merrimack Theatre, this Macbeth is a dark look at the pyschology of ambition and madness.
