PORTLAND - By the pricking of my thumbs…Something wicked this way comes, one night only on Halloween at the golden hour.
Join Speculative Drama for this one-hour adaptation of their internationally acclaimed 2020 production of Macbeth. The production was featured at the 2020 Os Satyros online festival, Brazil. This live, immersive, outdoor performance explores Shakespeare’s spookiest play from the perspective of Macbeth reliving the events leading up to his bloody and merciless reign, descent into madness, and death.
Featuring a series of vignettes following the connective thread of what makes a man a monster, this fever dream of a production is a 50-minute runaway train of frightening witches, bloody battles, and macabre madness, the perfect way to spend your Halloween evening.
Audience is invited to meet at alternative arts venue The Steep and Thorny Way to Heaven (Southeast 2nd and Madison) on Sunday, October 31 at 4:30 p.m., and follow the Three Weird Sisters to an undisclosed nearby outdoor arena. Take-home beverage packages both adult and virgin are available to purchase before and after the show, and free trick-or-treat bags are available for all audience members to take home, because even adults deserve a little sweetness on Halloween.
No reservations are required for this free event. All actors are fully vaccinated, and masks are required for all audience members for the duration of the show, regardless of vaccination status.
