Shakespeare in the Park 2013 - Macbeth

Celebrating its 31st year, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival brings its performance of "Macbeth" to Downtown Redwood City for 3 weekends in August!

Kenneth Kelleher returns to direct Macbeth. Generally regarded as one of the Bard's major tragedies (along with Hamlet, Othello, and King Lear), this is the first time SF Shakes has produced it for Free Shakespeare in the Park. Macbeth is memorable for its suspenseful plot and thrilling scenes of witchcraft and swordplay. Audiences will recognize Macbeth's famous soliloquies, including "Is this a dagger which I see before me?" and "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow", as well as the witches' rhymes "Double double toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble", which have become an ingrained part of English-speaking culture. Festival brings its performance of "Macbeth" to Downtown Redwood City for 3 weekends in August!

Shakespeare in the Park will offer 3 evening shows on Saturdays and 3 afternoon shows on Sundays while providing an opportunity for everyone to see high quality, professional theater in the relaxing setting of Sequoia Campus, free of charge.

Free Shakespeare in the Park began in 1983, with its debut production of The Tempest in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. It is now one of the major free Shakespeare programs in the nation. Free Shakespeare in the Park provides an opportunity for everyone to see high quality, professional theater at no cost.
