Macbett
Presented by: Carnegie Mellon School of Drama
Is there no one I can trust? And shall I then suspect my brother, my faithful dog, the wine I drink, the air I breathe? Eugène Ionesco's Macbett turns Shakespeare’s classic tale into a tragic farce that captures the insanity of war. After subduing a rebellion, the generals Macbett and Banco are promised great rewards by the Archduke Duncan. When Duncan breaks his promise, Macbett is driven to plot Duncan’s murder, take his crown, and steal his wife. Ionesco’s reworking. Shannon Sindelar directs.
