  Macbeth at Capitol Hill Arts Workshop


Capitol Hill Arts Workshop
545 7th Street, SE Washington

Propelled by dark forces, ruthless in his execution and haunted by his actions, a tyrant ascends the throne. Is he a man taking on the role dictated by fate, society, and his own ambition? Or is he a true villain? In the shadow of unspeakable deeds, Macbeth and all who surround him must ask: What am I party to? Where's the line? When have I gone too far? When is it too late?

DC Metro Theater Arts - Recommended

"...Director Hannah Todd's adaptation of this, the shortest of Shakespeare's tragedies, is economical and lean, clocking in at just under ninety minutes without an intermission. Characters are composited, speeches and entire scenes are cut, but the effect is akin to an orchestral piece arranged for a chamber music quintet. Creative solutions to ensure the important themes and movements are played, and in the process, the inner architecture is revealed."

"...A small cast and space lead to some creative choices, one of my favorites being what Director Hannah Todd has done with the witches. The witches' prophecies fill the room in the form of ghostly whispers (sound design, Ethan Balis). I'm often not a fan of pre-recorded voice-overs being used in live theatre, but this effect consistently gave me goosebumps. Todd's direction really brings out the creepiness of the play, whether it be through the way Macbeth and Lady Macbeth (Raven Bonniwell) are blocked to pose menacingly or how Banquo's (Desiree Chappelle) ghostly figure appears looming and pale under the stage lights. Balis's choice in music also lifts the gut-twisting discomfort of the plot."
