Naked Shakes at UCSB Presents Stripped Down Version of ‘Macbeth’
No scenery, no props, and only minimal costumes — just the actors, their voices, and, of course, the words. This is the essence of Naked Shakes.
When: Saturday, Oct. 5, 2013, 2 p.m.
Where: Hatlen Theater, Ocean Road, UCSB Campus, CA
Cost: $13 - $17
Age limit: All ages
Directed by Irwin Appel, Professor of Theater, and Director of the UCSB BFA Actor Training Program, Macbeth stars UCSB professors Jeff Mills in the title role, and Michael Morgan as Duncan the king, along with a cast of sixteen talented UCSB students. Macbeth also marks the first time Naked Shakes has performed in the Hatlen Theater. The Department of Theater and Dance is also excited to pair Macbeth with a contemporary play, Equivocation by Bill Cain, a fictional account of the Gunpowder Plot to blow up British Parliament and King James, and how these events may have led to Shakespeare’s creation of Macbeth.
