Shakespeare's Macbeth & NJCU events

June 22-24th ( Tuesday-Thursday )
7:30pm - 10:00pm
Shakespeare's "Macbeth"

Actors Shakespeare Company at NJCU presents "Macbeth," which stands alone among Shakespeare's plays in its savage articulation of human evil. Goaded on by a ruthless wife and the diabolic forces she conjures, Macbeth forsakes honor to pursue a destructive path. This Lab features five actors digging into this darkest of plays in a project loosely modeled on the Lab's prior small-cast "Romeo and Juliet."
