Macbeth @ Lower City Park (Festival Stage)

Accessible and thrilling, sophisticated and primal, Riverside artistic director Sean Lewis’s radical re-interpretation of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” uses eight actors to tell the story of an ambitious general in a country where strife runs as far back as memory. With the witches—here, a group of women left nationless by conflict, who have no way to end the bloodshed but by taking down the unstoppable warrior Macbeth—we enter a world of passion, intrigue, macabre strategy, and magic. It’s a ghost tale fit for any starry summer night.
