Prophecies. Madness. Ambition. Blood. The King has been murdered, but how long will the new King live? IN Shakespear's supernatural tragedy Macbeth, the titular Lord is led by the prophecies of witches to conspire with his wife on an ambitious plot to rule Scotland--at any cost. But when their delusions of power result in bloodshed, Macbeth is sent into a downward spiral of madness. Tormented by visions and guilt while the price of his crimes takes its toll, what fate awaits Macbeth? Join us for a chilling account of the destructively cyclical nature of dreams and nightmares come true.                                            

All seats are $10 - EWU students admitted free with student ID
