Macbeth is the tale of the title character, who, in an effort to ascend to the throne, murders the King of Scotland when Macbeths femme fatale advises him to speed along a prophecy from a trio of witches. Hydewares high-energy staging promises all of the betrayal and backstabbing you crave in a Shakespearean tragedy, and best of all, the show is free! Macbeth plays at 6 p.m. Friday through Sunday (September 7 through 16) in the Whitaker Theatre at the pool pavilion in Tower Grove Park (4256 Magnolia Avenue), BYOC (chair).
