A wildly experimental and inventive new play that does not behave. Playwright Alice Birch has put together a grouping of vignettes that ask how to revolutionize language, relationships, work, and life in general while bursting at the seams of conformity.
A 90-minute adaptation of Shakespeare's magical play of magic and mystery, full of his greatest hits: young lovers, political turmoil, drunken fools, and a sorcerer enacting his revenge on those who wronged him. Studio 506's production will travel to the various public parks in Downtown Lowell - a different park per act of the play.
Migdalia Cruz's modern verse translation of Shakespeare's spookiest tragedy. Macbeth, a noble Scottish lord, is shown a pathway to power and the throne by supernatural beings. His bloody ambition and ruthless wife spur him on with complete and utter abandon to make the prophecy a reality. But everything, especially power, comes at a cost.
Translation written for the Hitz Shakespeare Translation Project as part of the Play On! Project of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival.
