“Confusion now hath made his masterpiece." Were these words ever truer than when we have our way? It's time for the Halloween show, bardflies! And of course we will do it the way we always do, "Shakespeare Raw".
"But I'm not familiar with the play" you say, well, here's the gist: Macbeth tells the story of a brave Scottish general who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, he murders King Duncan and takes the throne for himself. He is then wracked with guilt and paranoia, and he soon becomes a tyrannical ruler as he is forced to commit more and more murders to protect himself from enmity and suspicion. The bloodbath and consequent civil war swiftly take MacB and his wife into the realms of arrogance, madness, and death.
And we're going to make it fun. You'll have ONE opportunity to catch this spectacle, October 20th - doors at 7, show at 7:30. Longer show runs are currently at ‘hopefully next year’.
Seating *will be limited* so I'd recommend getting in ASAP on the night of. Also, Masks will be mandatory unless you are at your table. I am not interested in arguing about this, so don't bother.
Cost is $10 at the door or $5 if you're in a Halloween costume. Hey! Another excuse to dress as a sexy nurse, or a sexy vampire, or sexy Friedrich Nietzsche, whatever your kick is; either way you'll have an extra 5 bucks to spend at the bar.
And now that all the necessaries have been stated, "I go, and it is done. The bell invites me. Hear it not, Duncan, for it is a knell That summons thee to heaven or to hell."
