Memories from the 1st Annual Night of Shakespeare Shorts 2019



Petaluma Shakespeare is proud to present Macbeth by William Shakespeare directed by John Langdon. Langdon’s brilliant reimagining of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy of ambition and evil is not to be missed. Five actors inhabit a haunting tale of prophecy, greed, murder, and power.  This pocket Shakespeare production will haunt you into Halloween and beyond. Don’t miss this classtic tale of a good man driven bad.  If it could happen to Macbeth, it could happen to you.
