Macbeth
by Penfold Theatre Company

Sep. 05
Sunday

Macbeth follows a Scottish general’s rise to power after receiving a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by power and spurred on by his wife, Macbeth’s ruthlessness threatens to destroy his nation, those closest to him and even his own sanity. This masterpiece by William Shakespeare is a timeless warning against unchecked ambition.

Directed by Marcus McQuirter

Macbeth will feature: Nadine Mozon, Yunina Barbour Payne, Chelsea Manasseri, Robin Beltran, and Danielle Kaigler.

 

From 1945 to 1963, listeners across the nation tuned in to Theatre Guild on the Air. Created by the Theatre Guild, which produced 220 plays on Broadway, Theatre Guild on the Air broadcast radio retellings of classic and contemporary plays, bringing the Great White Way to Main Street, USA.

Now, Penfold Theatre is hosting a series of live readings, free-of-charge, from the Theatre Guild on the Air Collection at the Harry Ransom Center of the University of Texas. Performed in the live radio show format by local actors and a foley sound artist, audiences will hear the original Broadway broadcasts given new life.

After each hour-long reading, Penfold’s artistic directors will host a discussion between the audience and artists. All this takes place inside Austin’s historic Neill-Cochran House Museum, originally an iconic mansion house built in the mid-19th century.
