“Something wicked this way comes…”
Returning home from battle, the victorious Macbeth meets three witches on the heath. Driven by their disturbing prophecies, he sets out on the path to murder.
This contemporary staging of Shakespeare’s darkest psychological thriller marks both Christopher Eccleston’s RSC debut and the return of Niamh Cusack to the Company. Eccleston is known for portraying the Ninth Doctor in the British television series “Doctor Who” and Matt Jamison in the American drama series “The Leftovers” on HBO.
Reserved seating tickets ($15 Adults, $10 Students) are available online or by calling the box office at 509-529-6500. Beer, wine, and snacks will be available for purchase. RSVP on Facebook
