The Tragedy of Macbeth is presented as an hour-long audio drama set in the gangs of New York of the 1860's. This turbulent time finds us in the midst of the American Civil War and domestic unrest in the streets of New York City. The classic story stays the same: our tragic hero Macbeth stumbles upon the witches in the sewers, who fill his head with the prophecy of being the" king hereafter." Murder, mayhem, and a grab for power consume the Macbeths as they rise and fall during their short reign.

This audio drama is produced by the Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission, Prince George’s County Department of Parks and Recreation, Arts and Cultural Heritage Division, with support from the Maryland State Arts Council.
