Chicago Shakespeare presents: Short Shakespeare!: Macbeth

February 16–March 16, 2019 / CST’s Courtyard Theater

by William Shakespeare
adapted & directed by Marti Lyons

Driven by the desire for power, Macbeth struggles with his conscience and chooses a tragic path. This 75-minute abridged production of the classic tragedy is a perfect introduction to Shakespeare. Adapted and directed by Marti Lyons—who is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after directors in American theater—it will be performed for more than 30,000 students during weekday Team Shakespeare matinees, with public performances on Saturdays, making Shakespeare accessible for audiences of all ages. After the performance, the actors remain on stage for a question-and-answer session, and then join the audience in the Lobby for informal conversations and photos.
