A violent cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by Macbeth, his trusted friend. Macbeth -- with his manipulative 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" that are often found in even the best of men and women. Organic Theater Company's fresh take on this ageless tale sees this power couple's journey in its grotesque complexity. Learn More

We really enjoyed the show--and the seats! From the beginning, the show was entertaining and thought-provoking. We especially enjoyed the second act, with its frequent unexpected turns. Greg Anderson, who played all parts, was especially convining when he was playing the dog and the Senator, but did a great job in all roles.

“Refreshingly, a political story that can be appreciated by all viewers, no matter what their party affiliation.”* *_—Talkin’ Broadway _** **
By Lee Blessing
Directed by Shawn Douglass
Featuring Artistic Associate Greg Matthew Anderson
Controversial performance artist Kerr has his NEA funding threatened in a calculated, political trick by his hometown candidate, the folksy, dog-toting Therm Pooley. For revenge, Kerr attempts a dog-napping to reveal that the Senator has the public on a leash. But the Universe exacts its own fantastical revenge on Kerr. Fate, along with the help of some good belly rubs, compels Kerr to sit and stay closer to the Senator than he ever could have imagined. Blessing celebrates the inner life of our canine companions and spots the artist-activist in us all.
