Macbeth (Movable/Outdoors) 6pm
By William Shakespeare
June 7 – June 23, 2019
“And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out brief candle!”
The horror and the poetry of this supernatural tragedy are magnified as the moon rises over Macbeth’s castle – represented by the stone walls of the Patapsco Female Institute in Ellicott City. You’ll be up close to the action as you travel with the actors through the historic park. Audience size will be limited for the movable play, as we want the crowd to enjoy the full experience of being up close to the traveling action. We encourage advance purchase of tickets online. The ticket tent and gates will open 90 minutes before the play.
For the “movable” play: If you bring a picnic, please use disposable packaging: Do not carry coolers or chairs to the park. There is no place to store personal belongings when the play begins to travel through the park. You’ll be walking or standing outdoors through most of the performance. Please wear comfortable shoes. Questions? Please contact Box Office staff by email or by phone at 410-244-8570.
