2020 Shakespeare in the Parks presents Macbeth: Radio Drama, Online

The Maryland-National Capital Parks and Planning Commission, Arts and Cultural Heritage Division Presents the Prince George’s Summer Shakespeare Festival.

Shakespeare In the Parks 2020
Macbeth: Radio Drama
by William Shakespeare

Shakespeare in the Parks 2020 is an exciting virtual experience! The Tragedy of Macbeth is presented as an hour-long audio drama set among the gangs of New York of the 1860s, a turbulent time during the American Civil War, with domestic unrest in the streets of the city. The classic story stays the same: the tragic hero Macbeth stumbles upon three witches in the sewers, who fill his head with the prophecy of being the “king hereafter.” Murder, mayhem, and a grab for power consume the Macbeths, as they rise and fall during their short reign.

Appropriate for middle school ages and above.

Macbeth
Something wicked this way comes…

By William Shakespeare
Adapted and Directed by Kate Magill Robinson

Kate Magill Robinson, director of Camp Encore’s terrific productions of As You Like It in 2013 and Lotsa Lazzi! in 2014, returns this summer to lead teen actors through Shakespeare’s lyrical tale of murder and madness.

An ensemble-based script, created just for this camp, will use Shakespeare’s original language to tell the story of the noble warrior Macbeth and his ambitious wife, who tread a dark path and trade their souls to gain the crown of Scotland. Our production, performed in the Greenbelt Arts Center on July 15 and 16, will also use movement, music and stage combat to tell this story of magic, power and destiny.

PARENTAL ADVISORY: Due to subject matter and staged violence, this production may not be suitable for children under 10.
