Poster for the play: MacbethA man, a wife, a vision, a nightmare.

Consumed by an eerie prophecy, Macbeth, a valiant soldier, murders the monarch of Scotland and takes the throne. Clinging to the certainty of his destiny, Macbeth and his ambitious wife discover that guilt can be an unbearable burden.

"Our exploration of Macbeth focuses more on that potential in all of us to make bad choices, than solely on the supernatural," says Trudeau. "The witches, much like the Fates, provide the context in which the tragedy unfolds, but Macbeth makes his own choices and, as we know, they are very bad choices."

Macbeth will open in the Tilden Arts Center on November 6 at 7:00 pm. The production continues Friday and Saturday evenings and Sundays at 4:00 through November 23. Tickets are $15 General Admission and $10 for students of all ages, with special "pay-what-you-can" Sunday matinee prices.

For reservations, call 508.375.4044. Credit cards are accepted at the Box Office.
