Macbeth Artwork

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Melia Bensussen
Featuring graduate acting students from the A.R.T. Institute class of 2018


After murdering their king, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth spiral ever deeper into the desperation and madness of guilt. Featuring the A.R.T. Institute for Advanced Theater Training Class of 2018, this new staging by Obie Award-winning director Melia Bensussen (Desdemona: A Play About a Handkerchief, A.R.T. Institute; A Doll’s House, Huntington Theatre Company) brings Macbeth into conversation with Edgar Allan Poe’s 19th century—when Gothic horror stories haunted the boundaries between the outside world and the individual unconscious.
