Fair is foul, and foul is fair Spurred by prophesy and consumed by ambition, Macbeth murders the Scottish king and claims the throne. Fueled by guilt and paranoia, the new king and his wife embark on an increasingly bloody campaign to hold onto power. José Luis Valenzuela (Destiny of Desire) directs “the Scottish play,” in which the impulse to destroy rather than change grips the Macbeths, wreaking havoc on their minds and on everyone in their way. Renowned for making the epic feel operatic, Valenzuela’s intriguing and ritualistic take on Shakespeare’s evocative tragedy plumbs the depths of human psychology and the pitfalls of unchecked ambition and violence. This production of Macbeth is part of Shakespeare in American Communities, a national program of the National Endowment for the Arts in partnership with Arts Midwest. Development of Macbeth was supported by a grant from the James F. and Marion L. Miller Foundation. #MacbethOSF
