When is it?

Saturday, February 18, at 2 pm and 8 pm

What is it?

This bawdy spoof on Shakespeare’s Macbeth provoked audience riots at the original 1896 production. The crude language and violent, absurd vision of the world, coupled with the characters’ outrageous greed, cruelty, and cowardice, satirizes the fundamental attitudes and practices of Western civilization. This seminal work of anti-theatre shattered common perceptions of what theatre was and could be, and paved the way for the Surrealists, Dadaists, Theatre of Cruelty, and Theatre of the Absurd.
