Directed by Celeste Cosentino and Tyson Rand

In 1936, Orson Welles created theatrical history when he cast a company of African- Americans in William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” while relocating the setting from Scotland to 19th Century Haiti (during the reign of Henri Christophe, the slave turned emperor).

Ensemble Theatre in partnership with the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival will be recreating and re-imagining this epic production while working from the original Federal Theater Project’s script.

The production opens May 23 and runs Thurs.- Sat. at 8:00 p.m.; Sunday at 2:00 p.m. through June 8th. Preview Performance May 22nd.

Co-directed by CSF Artistic Director Tyson Douglas Rand and Ensemble Theatre Artistic Director Celeste Cosentino.
