It’s Shakespeare. It’s contemporary. It’s accessible. And this is the final weekend to experience it. Heartwood Theater’s “Macbeth” is not what you’re thinking. For a glimpse of the set, the costumes, the cast - visit and watch the video trailer.

In an evening of memorable theater, a delightful juxtaposition emerges between Shakespeare’s well known verse, delivered by a young and powerful cast, and a complex array of integrated technical elements, set in the 21st century. The tragedy and themes of Macbeth’s world slide, effortlessly, into our world.

It’s powerful, innovative and bold theater, built upon a classic. And it’s happening right here, in Midcoast Maine. Experience Shakespeare’s timeless genius through a new lens, with this contemporary adaptation of “Macbeth.” Content suitable for adults and mature teens.
