Conservatory Presents Shakespeare Adaptation 'MAC BETH' April 2-4
March 26, 2021
The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University presents MAC BETH from William Shakespeare's "Macbeth," adapted by Erica Schmidt and directed by Victoria Chauvin, streaming April 2-4.
Synopsis: After school, seven teenage girls convene in an abandoned lot to perform a play. They drop their backpacks, transform their uniforms, and dive into a DIY retelling of Macbeth. As the girls conjure kings, warriors and witches, Shakespeare’s bloody tale seeps into their reality. MAC BETH recontextualizes a classic text to expose the ferocity of adolescence and the intoxicating power of collective fantasy.
