Synopsis: Powerful ambitions. Crippling guilt. Brutal consequences. William Shakespeare’s dark and bloody tragedy is as relevant today as it was 400 years ago. In this World Premiere adaptation by Beth Ann Hopkins, with original music by Elliot Roth, ambition corrupts a noble mind. He will betray and destroy all he holds dear.
