Questions that might get asked frequently

Q: Is it family friendly?
A: Macbeth features some pretty ferocious violence and some images that might be frightening to pre-teens. Then again, it's more poetical and less graphic than what they might often see on television.

Q: Do I get extra-credit for attending?
A: Ask your English or Drama teacher if you have one. If you're not a student, then the answer is probably no.

Q: Do you have a synopsis of the play which I can download to familiarize myself with the story in advance?
A: We're so glad you asked. Yes, we do. Click here to download our Macbeth Synopsis.

Q: Have you updated the play or set it in some kind of imaginative new world?
A: Our production is Shakespeare's text, with a few minor edits. Our production is set in 11th century Scotland, when the historical Macbeth lived and when Shakespeare's play is set. The costumes, set, etc... are evocative of that time. Our goal is to present Macbeth as Shakespeare intended it, not by reimagining it at the Battle of Little Big Horn or a post-apocalyptic luau.

Q: How long is it?
A: Macbeth runs around two hours and thirty minutes, including intermission.
