Produced by the Department of Theater, Film, and Media Studies and directed by faculty member Amy Steiger, Shakespeare’s tale of terrors and of unbridled ambition is full of “present fears” and “horrible imaginings” – witches, ghosts, and deadly violence both actual and imaginary – that trouble boundaries between the material world and systems or feelings that can less easily be clutched in the hands. Exploring the remarkable natural and architectural landscape of Historic St. Mary’s City, this site-specific Halloween production travels a path from outdoors in the Town Center to inside the old State House. Along the way, we will draw on Shakespeare’s roots in medieval theater, on historical connections between colonial Maryland and early modern England, and on the power of all kinds of fear, then and now.
