Macbeth3 is LAWSC's critically acclaimed adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth ("Lisa Wolpe's boldly truncated, graphic novel-esque synthesis gallops along at a breathless pace [yet] has plenty of epic sweep." - Los Angeles Times). This lean, stripped-down, post-apocalyptic version highlights the play's intensity and breakneck pace, while illuminating both Macbeth's tormented inner life and the tragic consequences of a world at war with itself. Something wicked this way comes - but it's not what you think! In a bleak world of the near future, the few survivors of an apocalypse scrounge for power in a land of sparse resources and sparser humanity. Macbeth, ambitious hero of a recent bloody battle, receives a visitation from Satan, who tells him he is next in line for the crown. How far will Macbeth go to satisfy his lust for power and security? Part of the Wicked Wilde Shakespeare Festival.
