Play description:

A drum. A drum. Macbeth doth come.

Shakespeare’s Macbeth explores the darkest depths of human aspiration. Driven by an insatiable hunger for power, posterity and certainty, Macbeth and his wife commit a murder and set in motion the inevitable unraveling of their own humanity. As the tragedy unfolds and the horrors increase, Macbeth descends into a solitary hell of his own making, powerless, childless and hopeless.

Award-winning director Desha Crownover (Seussical & The 39 Steps) returns to Coronado Playhouse with her unique brand of imagination and creativity to reimagine one of Shakespeare’s best-known tragedies for our 22nd Annual Free Classic play.

Tickets for Macbeth are FREE thanks to a generous grant from the City of Coronado.
