Something wicked this way comes!
How far will one couple go in the pursuit of power? Find out as the group Actors From The
London Stage (AFTLS) brings to bloody life the shortest and most ferocious of Shakespeare’s
tragedies. The infamous “Scottish play” recounts the brutal rise and fall of the ill-fated
Macbeths. Both a cautionary tale and a parable for our age, Macbeth is quick, raw, and
remarkably relevant. Parental discretion is advised.
Don't miss out on the frightening fun as five professional actors from London's most prestigious
stages bring Macbeth to life (and death). Only three performances!
Based in London, England and produced on campuses throughout the nation by Shakespeare at
Notre Dame, AFTLS sends a new self-directed ensemble of five professional actors to the United
States twice a year to universities across the nation. Actors From The London Stage, whose
members hail from such prestigious theater companies as the Royal Shakespeare Company, the
National Theatre of Great Britain and Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, has called Notre Dame its
American home since 2000.

A laugh-filled glance at backstage ego-tripping and anxiety—complete
with acting tips—as generations and dreams collide in a dressing room.
A Life in the Theatre
is David Mamet’s bruising, affectionate peek at Robert and John, two actors
battling to share a dressing room and the spotlight. The play gives a
glimpse into the complex relationship that develops as the torch is passed from
one generation to the next—one that jumps between love and respect to
impatience and anger. Mamet is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize and New York
Drama Critics Circle Award for Glengarry Glen Ross.
“Mr. Mamet has written—in gentle ridicule; in jokes, broad
and tiny; and in comedy, high and low—a love letter to the theatre.” The New York Times
E-Cigarettes and matches are used in this production. ASL will be provided for Saturday's performance.
