The Department of Theater presents Pilot's Thumb, a lecture-demonstration on Macbeth and the three witches, on Friday, April 2nd at 8 pm, Saturday, April 3rd at 2 pm and 8 pm, and Sunday, April 4th, at 2 pm in the Frear Ensemble Theater in the Lang Performing Arts Center.

Senior honors acting students Sam Dingman, Felicia Leicht, Adrienne Mackey, and Audrey Pernell will present this cautionary tale as the culmination of their extensive research into Shakespeare's Scottish play, addressing such questions as: how much power do the witches have over Macbeth? Is Macbeth truly a cursed play? What is the nature of time in Macbeth? Directed by Dan Rothenberg.
