Shakespeare in the Parks 2020 Macbeth: Radio Drama
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. Click the link and enjoy. Appropriate for middle school ages and above.
