Heartwood Regional Theater Company presents a techno-psycho-thriller adaptation of Shakespeare's short, shocking tragedy, Macbeth. With 16 actors, the production maintains a devotion to Shakespeare's language, in a conceptual visual framework which features live video, sequenced pre-made film pieces, music, illusions, shadow, and a full aural landscape. Macbeth's plot centers on the core themes of ambition, dualism, evil, transience, and the shadow life. Audiences share Macbeth's hyper-experience, in his brief time upon the stage.
