Stage Right Productions and Dionysus present a local production of Mac on the Move, an outdoor summer production of Macbeth in four locations around Central Oregon (including three shows in a cemetery, see below) beginning July 16.
This is a modernized version set in a business world but retains the original language of Shakespeare. Macbeth, an ambitious businessman, discovers from three strange secretaries that he can be CEO (king) if he simply kills a few people.
The production will hint at themes of the destructiveness of corporate greed, the distribution of wealth in our country and “we are the 99 percent” movement.
“Bend has ne’er seen a production such as this one and theatre in this town will never quite be the same. Our production proves that quality drama needs nothing more than talent, spirit and a few bad a** locations; we leave the rest to the bard,” says Director/Actor Clinton K. Clark.
Directed by Clark and Miranda Rose featuring all local talent.
July 16-August 1 in four locations. All productions start at 7:30pm and cost $10 at bendticket.com or at the door.
