Macbeth at Fort Point, 2014

Press Release 1
Press Release 2

Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Ava Roy & John Hadden
Produced by Lauren D. Chavez & Ava Roy

Multiple performance trajectories wind through the dark stone corridors, narrow passageways, expansive brick casemates, and inner chambers of the fort. On the parade ground, in the direct onslaught of the billowing fog and relentless wind, the witches work their charms. The Golden Gate bridge soars overhead, the city skyline flickers – a full sensory immersion into Macbeth’s Scotland as it collides with Civil War era and modern day San Francisco. In collaboration with the National Park Service.


Fort Point, San Francisco Golden Gate National Recreation Area (National Historic Site, California)
