Macbeth is cursed. Or so say superstitious theater companies that avoid performing what they call, in hushed whispers, The Scottish Play. This summer, however, Organic Theater Company will try their luck staging the famously bloody tale of kings, fate, and murder. When the titular general encounters three witches, they let loose with a stunning prophecy: he's destined to rule. On hearing the news, Lady Macbeth isn't content to simply wait for the crown. Instead, she spurs her husband to action and sets in motion a series of events that will cover both their hands in blood, cloud their minds with guilt, and make all their future dinner parties really, really awkward. Although the prophecies come true, the question remains: without them, would Macbeth have become king at all?
When C. C. Showers, a disenchanted young Kentuckian, arrives in Zion, Indiana, he's determined to cut himself loose from a long family line of preachers. Instead of taking up the cloth, he takes up a wrench at a local mechanic's shop, but finds there a purpose greater than speedy oil changes. He becomes close with the mechanic's son, Buddy, a troubled young man who can divine the presence of water. As a child, Buddy nearly drowned—his mother died in the same incident—leaving him with a fear of his gifts so crippling that he refuses even to bathe. As Showers works to help Buddy overcome his terror, the local women try to convince him to set up shop in their church. But in their desperation, the seeds of tragedy lie, waiting only for a bit of water.

For nearly half a century, the Organic Theater Company has presented classic, contemporary, and adapted productions, relying on the greatest resource any company has: its artists. The resident company's work has not only appeared on stages throughout the city, but also the state and the country—including a stint on Broadway. In 1974, they tackled the world premiere of David Mamet's Sexual Perversity in Chicago, and have since collaborated with celebrated playwrights such as Edward Albee, Wendy Wasserstein, and Sebastian Barry on midwest, US, and world premieres.
