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

The Greenhouse production of The Importance of Being Earnest was great! I mean...Laugh Out Loud (LOL) funny! Not only were the laugh lines palpable, the actors' deliveries were well-timed to showcase the wit of Oscar Wilde.
We came all the way from the western suburbs to see this play and will definitely return for other Greenhouse productions. The intimate venue is refreshing.
We really enjoyed the evening and the $6.00 parking deck nearby was a plus--no hunting for a parking space.
Directed by Shawn Douglass
Featuring Artistic Associates Annabel Armour, Linda Gillum, and David Darlow (as Lady Bracknell)
Charming bachelors Jack and Algernon lead double lives in order to pursue two proper young ladies, while avoiding obligatory lunches with terrifying aunts. When they are caught in their public lies, the result is one of the funniest plays ever written. Wilde dishes up delicious criticisms of identity, manners and the customs of courtship, delivered with his outrageous wit and the sting of laughter.
