The Department of Theater at Swarthmore College presents William Shakespeare's Macbeth on Friday through Sunday, May 1st to 3rd at 6pm, in Crum Meadow, in the Crum Woods off of Fieldhouse Lane. Join us for an invigorating exploration of Shakespeare's staggering tragedy.

Uncontrollable passions and dangerous secrets are the life force behind this timeless story. Engage your sense of adventure and actively immerse yourself in the world of the play. Come prepared to feast, think, dance, delve, explore, and enjoy! Featuring wildly re-imagined music by The Kinks played live by Swarthmore's finest troubadours.

The production takes place in several locations around Crum Meadow. We highly recommend wearing long pants and sturdy, close-toed shoes.

This production is the Honors directing thesis of Jacqueline Vitale '09. Colin Aarons '09 is featured in the title role. Designers include: Daniel Perelstein '09 (sound), Carmella Ollero '09 (choreography), Emma Ferguson '10 (set), Allison McCarthy '09 (costumes), and Logan Tiberi-Warner '10 (body art). Guest artist Kate Watson-Wallace will provide space and movement dramaturgy.

The performances are free and open to the public without advance reservations. Each performance will be followed by a reception in Crumhenge with the cast and crew of the production. A rain date is scheduled for Monday, May 4. For further information, contact Liza Clark at lclark1@swarthmore.edu or call 610-328-8260.
