The Warehouse Theatre returns to present a masterful performance of William Shakespeare’s epic play Macbeth. Set in the deep South of the United States, this production allows students to experience the struggles and ambitions of these iconic characters in a contemporary setting.
The brave Scottish general Macbeth receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will be the King of Scotland. Devoured by his ambition for power, he murders King Duncan and takes the throne. Overtaken by guilt and paranoia, Macbeth loses sight of what makes life worth living.
Macbeth is directed by Libby Hawkins, performed by an ensemble of six actors, and supported by BMW Group Plant Spartanburg.
