Shakespeare goes sci-fi in MacSith, a one-of-a-kind mashup of "The Scottish Play" and Star Wars. With the planet Cumber finally at peace, Mon Beth returns home to celebrate his army's triumph against the Weyan Invaders. Soon, however, he encounters a sinister prophecy: Against all odds and his low station, Mon Beth will one day become King of Cumber. Driven by this prediction and by his wife's insatiable lust for power, Mon Beth puts all his might into taking the throne -- no matter the cost. Neither parody nor farce, this Star Wars/Shakespeare hybrid is a heart-pounding, full-throttle, 70-minute drama with fight choreography by professional fight director Orion Couling. Lightsabers hiss and snap during this inventive and ever-powerful tragedy at Chicago's City Lit Theater.
