Shakespeare’s “cursed” and bloodiest tragedy centers on the hero Macbeth who returns home having rescued Scotland from the ravages of civil war. Spurred on by an encounter with the three weird sisters, his wife’s ambitions and his own dream of “the imperial round,” Macbeth murders Duncan, the King of Scotland.

In possession of the throne, but haunted by the deed, Macbeth turns tyrant, ordering the murder of those who would threaten his safety. The rightful heir to the throne, Duncan’s son, Malcolm, backed by the nobleman MacDuff and other rebel Scots and English forces, descends on Macbeth's castle at Dunsinane. The consequences of Macbeth's fateful act become the undoing of both he and his wife, Lady Macbet.

This production, inspired by the 50th anniversary of Polish Director Jerzy Grotowski’s Polish Laboratory Theatre, features a movement-based ensemble of nineteen actors as well as members of the University’s drum ensemble. .
