Inspired by George W. Bush's first presidential term circa 2002, and an examination of our current culture, this fresh, modern take on Macbeth makes for a production that Shakespeare rookies and veterans alike can enjoy. In this classic, a violent cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Ross, a nobleman in the king's court, has been close to Macbeth but begins to question his true nature. Meanwhile, Macbeth -- with his ambitious wife by his side -- achieves the power he believes he deserves, but the price is tragically high. Shakespeare's masterpiece provides a glimpse into the human heart, with the "black and deep desires" found in even the best men and women and asks the question: "What would you be willing to do to achieve your dreams?"

About the Ticket Supplier: The Ruckus TheaterAs a company, we are focused and devoted both to the development of new work and the exploration of the standard rehearsal model. We emphasize open communication and exploration between the traditional roles defined in the rehearsal room -- that is to say, the actors feed the playwright, who feeds the director, who feeds the actors, designers, and dramaturg, who all give back in turn. We actively encourage each other to step outside our comfort zones. We are dedicated to developing our work and each other. We are particularly interested in involving alternate forms of media and embracing the unexpected way to tell the story.
The Ruckus is a transplant of Kalamazoo, MI, made up of actors, directors, playwrights, musicians, casting directors, publicity managers, grant writers, baristas, grad students, music directors, baby teachers, poets, computer fixers, appointment-makers and census-takers. We aim to make new things and think about them.
