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: Strangeloop TheatreThough we officially incorporated as Strangeloop Theatre in October of 2008, it was in the early part of that year that a core group of us started meeting up to discuss creating a theatre company we could call home. In June of 2008, we did a one-night staging of Welcome to the Moon (and other plays) by John Patrick Shanley as our first performance, because we could do a collection of short pieces using multiple directors and actors within the group. It was a wonderful first endeavor and helped to further strengthen a sense of community within the group.
That sense of community helped us to grow over the course of our first two years -- staging work that allows a number of voices to participate in the theatrical process. In addition to producing strong work by well-known playwrights, such as Brian Friel's Living Quarters, we have also shown a commitment to working with theatre artists of every discipline in the creation of new and original work, including our world-premiere adaptation of Ferdinand Raimund's The Millionaire Farmer, our holiday cabaret shows and our short play workshop series, Loopshop.
