Bare Theatre's Macbeth in Forest Theatre

July 24 - 25 & Jul 30 - Aug 1: Few plays, if any, are as notorious as this one.

Many actors and practitioners won't even utter the name in a theater, such is the reputation for Shakespeare's "cursed" tribute to King James I of England (who was also King James VI of Scotland). The king had a fascination with witchcraft and spirits and this play delivered - with a heavy dose of betrayal and bloodshed along the way. Bare Theatre brings this performance to a gorgeous setting in Forest Theatre. Food trucks will be on hand, and picnicking is permitted. Alcohol may be purchased at concessions stand only.
