Quick-Brewed Macbeth

April 25, 2019
6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
MECC Campus

This elegant, fast-paced version of Shakespeare’s bloody tale bursts with suspense and theatrical magic, presenting the whole play in a quick-brewed 55 minutes. Using much of Shakespeare’s original text, Macbeth’s fate to be King is foretold by three weird sisters – but is he told of his destiny or given a dangerous riddle of temptation? Macbeth’s reckless ambition will stop at nothing in his quest to become King. But when he stumbles un an avalanche of fear and betrayal, he inevitably crafts his own tragic downfall. Quick Brewed Macbeth originally developed by Shakespeare Festival St. Louis won a Kevin Kline Award in 2003. Join us for a production by Prison Performing Arts featuring some PEP students!
