Master playwright Noël Coward's Peace in Our Time poses the terrifying, yet intriguing question: What if the Nazis had won the Battle of Britain? Written in 1946, this taut drama exploring everyday life under occupation takes place in a South London pub with a diverse cast of collaborators and rebels, including writers, artists, members of the resistance, working-class Brits and, of course, officers of the Third Reich. The tension builds, leading to a surprising and ironic climax. Main Street Theater's production features a cast of 21, which includes performers from the University of Houston School of Theatre and Dance. Learn More

Bree Welch gave a remarkable performance. Very talented actress. On the other hand, while David Wald did a fine acting job, once his sleeves were ripped off and we see a modern day tattoo - really? IMO, if an actor wants to pursue a serious career in classics he or she might want to think twice about trendy decisions that don't fit his or her career objectives. Kinda killed the rest of the scenes where I could see the colorful tattoo. As for seating - next time we go to to this theater we will not buy tickets via gold star because we get lousy seats with a big beam in front of us that blocks a lot of the view. That did come in handy a couple of times that we didn't have to see that tattoo, but overall good seating here is really limited and it apparently won't be an option for gold star theater goers.
At most performances, Guy Roberts will be playing Macbeth and Jessica Boone will be playing Lady Macbeth.
For three performances, however, David Wald will be playing Macbeth and Bree Welch will be playing Lady Macbeth.
This play is 90 minutes with no intermission.
Macbeth is recommended for audiences 10 and up.
About the Ticket Supplier: Main Street Theater
In 1975, Houston was a booming, oil-rich metropolis with a growing, sophisticated populace eager for exposure to a wide variety of cultural activities. But with only one resident theater, patrons were inevitably limited in the number and range of theatrical voices they had the opportunity to hear. Furthermore, few professional opportunities existed for the city’s growing community of theater actors, directors, writers and designers. Thus, Main Street Theater, the first of several new theater companies established during the 1970’s, was founded to meet two needs: to offer Houston theatergoers a more varied and challenging selection of plays and musicals and to provide a venue for training, employment and exposure for our city’s professional theater artists.
