MACBETH IS AT BIG IDEA THEATRE JUST IN TIME FOR THE HALLOWEEN SEASON!

Big Idea Theatre continues its 10th Anniversary Season, FIND YOUR VOICE, with this Shakespeare classic. Inspired by the great Hammer Horror films of the 50s and 60s, Big Idea Theatre’s MACBETH will be a violent, bloody romp where witches and warriors will fill the haunted house theatre this fall!.. MACBETH opens September 29th and runs until October 28th, with performances Thursday-Saturday at 8pm. Come celebrate the Halloween season at Big Idea theatre!

«My desire to direct this play was to simply tell the story as written, but influenced by the Halloween season, Hammer Horror films, and Kurosawa. I hope this play is a roller coaster ride of fun and terror, entertaining for an audience of bored students or seasoned play goers.”
-Scott Divine, Director of MACBETH

About the show: On the way home from battlefield victory, Scottish general Macbeth encounters a trio of witches who cryptically allude to his future triumphs, culminating in his ascent to the throne. As these prophecies gradually come to pass, Macbeth’s initial skepticism gives way to corrupting temptation, agitated to murderous ends by his scheming wife. In this spooky adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic dark tragedy of unchecked political ambition, supernatural forces conspire with mankind’s basest nature to circumvent the established moral order and satiate the lust for power.

“His thoughts stalk him like snipers in the shadows, and when they attack, it’s with a violence that leaves him shorn of defenses.”
— The New York Times

“Neither the moral perils nor the practical consequences of his actions seem to fully pervade his self-awareness until it's too late. The witches said it, he believes it — that settles it.”
-Chicago Tribune
