Macbeth is one of Shakespeare’s most bewitching plays. Once you’ve witnessed the witches and their entrancing “Double, double, toil and trouble,” it’s hard to forget them, or Macbeth, or Lady Macbeth. Still, have you heard the full story?
Thursday, November 10-12 the Trine University Drama Club will be presenting Macbeth: The Story of the Witches. It’s a free production open to the community. The play begins at 7 PM each night in Taylor Hall’s Wells Theater, but you are encouraged to arrive early as seating might be limited for some performances.Macbeth is perhaps fitting for the political season, as Shakespeare’s original play deals with the seedy side of political wrangling. Macbeth is led to believe by witches that he will someday be King of Scotland. The only thing that stands in his way? The current king, Duncan.
