"Something wicked this way comes." How is it possible for an entire country to fall into the hands of a tyrant? What must the citizens do to reclaim their suddenly fragile free society? Celebrating the stagecraft known to William Shakespeare’s touring groups, Memphis audiences get to engage in the magic of actor transformation six actors remain onstage in a circle of support for the entire performance, adding a live soundscape and deftly changing roles moment-to-moment. The performance runs approximately 80 minutes without intermission.
