shakespeare in the garden 2019

At a time when the population struggles for resources, two people take it upon themselves to make a grab for power. Their actions are based on the half-true ramblings of three witches and the perceived opportunity that is presented to them. One fateful choice leads them to a series of bad decisions and takes their entire community to the brink of destruction. This haunting tragedy is filled by notions of how and why we take advantage of opportunities and the effects of those choices. Presented in promenade style from Shakespeare’s Folio text, the audience will journey through the Frankfurt Botanical Garden and see the struggles of one community racked by tyranny.
