New Theater on ISU Campus

"Blood will have blood” at the New Theatre as the ISU Theatre Department presents Shakespeare’s dark and violent tragedy, Macbeth. Director David Marcia describes it as - A play about murder. A nightmare-world where human history is reduced to its most basic elements, people who murder, and people who are murdered,”said Marcia, ‘Strange as it may seem, Macbeth is also a love story, albeit a very dark one. Macbeth could live well in a world where he wasn’t king, but his great love and the intervention of occult forces make it impossible for him to exist anywhere Lady Macbeth isn’t queen. The arc of their marriage drags an entire country through a slaughterhouse as they both summon and are summoned by powerful supernatural forces who give no account of themselves to mere humans.”Macbeth will open and run April 11-13 at 7:30 PM. There will be a 3:00 PM matinee on Saturday April 13 and a final matinee on Sunday April 14 at 4:00 PM. All performances will be at the New Theatre. Tickets may be purchased at the New Theatre Box Office or by calling 812-237-3333 the week of the show. Tickets are free with ISU Student ID!
