Presented by Actors' Shakespeare Project at United Parish in Brookline

Macbeth, a noble Scottish lord, is shown a pathway to power and the throne by supernatural beings. His bloody ambition and ruthless wife spur him on with complete and utter abandon to make the prophecy a reality. But everything, especially power, comes at a cost. Shakespeare’s eerie and thrilling tragedy explores unchecked thirst for control, tyranny, and its consequences.

by William Shakespeare in a translation by Migdalia Cruz
Directed by Dawn Meredith Simmons

The Oregon Shakespeare Festival’s Play on! Project updates Shakespeare’s texts for modern audiences. Beginning in 2011, the Oregon Shakespeare Festival, in collaboration with the Hitz Foundation, commissioned 36 playwrights to “translate” Shakespeare’s plays into 21st century English. The resulting adaptations are “literal translations” of Shakespeare’s plays. Much of the original, heightened language remains while obsolete words and complex phrases are updated for contemporary understanding. Play on! aims to include audiences, inviting them to experience Shakespeare’s plays in their linguistic present.
