About the Show
Theater 2020 presents a new take on Shakespeare's bloody tragedy reset in the '60s on a tropical island in the South Pacific.
In this 'Macbeth,' witchcraft abounds and passions play against ambition in a deadly game for tribal control. In this mythical setting, a group of AWOL soldiers have insinuated themselves into the local populace. After a time, the natives seek to wrest back their homeland with the aid of their spirit world. This fast-paced 80-minute adaptation features a multi-cultural cast, indigenous choreography, and exuberant stage combat. Note: In addition to the indoor shows, there will be two FREE outdoor performances on the Cadman Plaza Park War Memorial lawn on Friday, June 17 and Saturday, June 18 at 6pm.
