"Can such things be, 

And overcome us like a summer’s cloud, 

Without our special wonder?"

How far would you go to achieve your greatest ambition?  Grand desires give rise to ghastly deeds in Shakespeare’s tale of a brave warrior and his wife who become murderous monarchs. Macbeth is one of the theatre’s most fascinating horror stories about betrayal, dangerous desire, and the kind of evil that never sleeps.


Directed by Kate Clarke.  

"We came into the world like brother and brother, and now let's go hand in hand, not one before another.”

Take a pair of twin brothers (both called Antipholus), and another pair of twin servants (both called Dromio), separate them at birth and set them adrift in a city wary of strangers and with a reputation for sorcery, and you have a recipe for theatrical mayhem. A chaotic tale of mistaken identity, hilarious slapstick, and a city gone mad.

Directed by Dennis Elkins.
