What happens in a digital age where kings, king-makers, and the population itself suffer from an increasing paranoia about enemies, both foreign and homegrown? Shakespeare’s classic drama about unbridled ambition and political machinations receives a fresh treatment by the Genesius Project. Presented in the original language and featuring a cast of students, alumni, and associate actors of Merrimack Theater, this contemporary Macbeth is a dark look at the psychology of ambition and madness..
