Black Mac

There's William Shakespeare's Macbeth and then there's ours. BLACK MAC.

We all know the story of Macbeth: the weird sisters, the blood, the insanity, all that good stuff. But why? Why tell this story? BLACK MAC seeks to answer that question. This July, the Charlottesville Players Guild presents a retelling of The Scottish Play seen and told through the eyes of Blackness. This ain’t your “normal” Shakespeare. Join us, the Community, as we share the story of Macbeth just like we always have and always will!
