Description:
The action in William Shakespeare's masterpiece tumbles madly from the prophetic opening scene to the chilling last acts of a passionate young couple. Shocking, bloody violence reigns as together they claim Macbeth's right to the throne. In classic literary style, ambition is the source of both their greatness and ultimate downfall. Based in Staunton, Virginia, ASC specializes in "theatre of the imagination" focusing on expert acting and language, with most actors playing multiple roles. The company embraces the performance conditions and challenges of Shakespeare's day - with a nearly bare stage surrounded by audience members sharing the same light as the actors, and tackling how the master playwright conveyed darkness in plays performed outdoors in daylight.
