The Rivals and The Tragedy of Macbeth:
Paths to Power in our 18th Season of
all-FREE professional theatre.
First up is The Rivals, a comedy of manners by Richard Brinsley Sheridan. The first work of this 18th century playwright, The Rivals—full of false identities, gossip and high society scandal—turns the power of class and courtship on its head! The NYC debut of The Rivals took play in 1778 on John Street in Lower Manhattan.
Our second offering is Shakespeare's The Tragedy of Macbeth. Ambition goes unchecked by moral restraint and destruction befalls all but a lucky few. This classic story of the perils of ultimate power is fueled by the supernatural forces that haunt the castles and forests of early Scotland.
