As if William Shakespeare’s 17th-century tragedy Macbeth weren’t dark enough, Marble Valley Players has put an end-of-the-world spin on it. Directed by Jenna Carlson, MVP’s production is set in a post-apocalyptic wasteland. Here, prompted by the prophecy of three witches, a power-hungry general commits murder in his quest to be king of Scotland. Once on the throne, the royal is overcome by feelings of guilt and paranoia over his evil deed. Murder, dark magic and political intrigue are at play in this centuries-old examination of the consequences of unbridled ambition.
