Presented by Counterweight Theatre Lab at The Modbo, Colorado Springs CO

Oct 20 - 29 2017
‘Macbeth’ presented by Counterweight Theatre Lab at The Modbo, Colorado Springs CO

Five actors take Shakespeare’s tale of madness, ambition, and murder, create an intimate playing space amongst the audience, and explain the rules: every actor has memorized the entire text, no actor will play the same character two scenes in a row, at certain points the audience could be pulled into a scene, and roles will be traded, taken, or given at the drop of a hat.

October 20, 21, 28 | Switchback Coffee Roasters
October 27, 28, 29 | The Modbo

The audience enters into a lamplit space and is greeted by a traveling storyteller troupe that prepares the performance space: a rug, a chest with a handful of props and costumes, a few instruments, and some lanterns. The ensemble explains the rules to the audience:

1. Only four actors can be onstage at any time.
2. Actors will trade, take, and give roles after every scene.
3. No actor may play the same character
