Los Colochos Teatro brings an acclaimed and radical reimagining of Shakespeare’s Macbeth to Miami in as part of U.S. tour. Inside the iconic Mexican setting of this classic work, General Mendoza returns to camp one night, and stumbles across a prophetic witch who claims that he will lead the army. Spurred into action by his wife, he begins a seemingly endless chain of grisly murders. This thrilling, fast-paced and blood-soaked ensemble production is inspired by the work of iconic Mexican writers like Juan Rulfo (Pedro Páramo) and Elena Garro, and interwoven with Mexican history set against the backdrop of the Mexican Revolution and evocative of the gruesome events that exploded into the world’s consciousness with the 2014 Ayotzinapa massacre. Approximate running time: 2 hours and 15 minutes with no intermission Please note: this production contains a live animal. The play is apt only for age 16 and above.
