Follows the classic story of "Macbeth," but with even deeper emotional stakes.
Come see Lady Macbeth Encore at the Cutting Room, a spectacle of witches, sword fighting, and murder! Taking only the original text of Macbeth by William Shakespeare, Lady Macbeth focuses on a couple in love and the grief they suffer after losing their child. "The death of the Macbeth heir is acknowledged in the original, but there is yet to be a production that utilizes this trauma, compounded with the horrors of war, to drive the plot," says director, Katie North. With the help of her bachelor's in neuroscience from Princeton University, North has directed her actors to find the heartbreak within the Macbeth family and understand why they crave violence to cope with their unspeakable memories, vivid flashbacks, and post-traumatic stress. Thanks to rave reviews and sold-out performances over the summer, the production will encore this Halloween at the Cutting Room. Come enjoy the show, and if you attend the Halloween performance, stay afterward for the costume contest and cast party!
Please note: There is a $20 food and/or drink minimum at this venue.
