Aftls S15 Macbeth 800x600

"Something wicked this way comes..."

How far will one couple go in the pursuit of power? Find out as the group Actors From The London Stage (AFTLS) brings to bloody life the shortest and most ferocious of Shakespeare’s tragedies. The infamous “Scottish play” recounts the brutal rise and fall of the ill-fated Macbeths. Both a cautionary tale and a parable for our age, Macbeth is quick, raw, and remarkably relevant. Parental discretion is advised.

Don't miss out on the frightening fun as five professional actors from London's most prestigious stages bring Macbeth to life (and death). Only three Notre Dame performances!

Wednesday, February 11 | Thursday, February 12 | Friday, February 13 (Perfect for Friday the 13th fun!)
All performances at 7:30pm at Notre Dame's Washington Hall

Based in London, England and produced on campuses throughout the nation by Shakespeare at Notre Dame, AFTLS sends a new self-directed ensemble of five professional actors to the United States twice a year to universities across the nation. Actors From The London Stage, whose members hail from such prestigious theater companies as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the National Theatre of Great Britain, and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, has called Notre Dame its American home since 2000.
