A bloodthirsty cycle of corruption and betrayal is set in motion when the popular King Duncan of Scotland is murdered by his trusted kinsman Macbeth. In William Shakespeare's violent, tragic masterpiece, Macbeth achieves the power he believes he deserves, but the price is high. He must contend with his conscience, his ambitious wife and the influence of outside forces that guide Macbeth toward his destiny, only to discover that power achieved by bloodshed can only be maintained by more bloodshed. The Georgetown Gilbert & Sullivan Society -- America's only theater group with its own law school -- presents Macbeth as its winter show.
The Feb 10 & 11 shows will have free snacks and refreshments (both alcoholic and non-alcoholic).
