RVCC Theatre to Present One-Man Production of Macbeth

The Theatre at Raritan Valley Community College in Branchburg will present THAT PLAY: A Solo Macbeth, performed by Tom Gualtieri, Tuesday, November 24, at noon and 7 p.m. The production, recommended for audience members age 14 and older, is part of RVCCArts’ Tuesdays with Stories series. What could be more fun than murder, mayhem, suicide and revenge? In a wild and frightening 90-minute adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth, one man (actor Tom Gualtieri) attempts an answer. He spellbinds audiences with an electrifying performance that features 19 characters including Macbeth and his infamous Lady, the three weird sisters, no fewer than four terrifying apparitions, and a slew of Scottish Lords and Ladies. THAT PLAY: A Solo Macbeth was a 2013 Drama Desk nominee for Unique Theatrical Experience. Anyone interested in learning more about the presentation is invited to read Macbeth by William Shakespeare before or after attending the show.
