Macbeth – Iowa State University Theatre Production

by William Shakespeare


September 25-26 and October 2, 3, and 10, 1998 – Fisher Theater

Shakespeare’s dark masterpiece about a powerful war hero and his wife. Their ambition-driven act of regicide leads them to the crown, madness, the supernatural and mass murder. The title character’s descent into soul-less madness is surely one of the theatre’s most harrowing. Despite the grisly themes, some of Shakespeare’s most beautiful verse comes to life in this, his briefest, most distilled tragedy. “Something wicked this way comes.”
