Macbeth at Fort Point 2013 - Thursdays
San Francisco, CA
We Players remounts our epic production of Macbeth at Fort Point (first produced in 2008). Multiple performance trajectories wind through the dark stone corridors, narrow passageways, expansive brick casemates, and inner chambers of the fort. On the parade ground, in the direct onslaught of the billowing fog and relentless wind, the witches work their charms. The Golden Gate bridge soars overhead, the city skyline flickers – join us for a full sensory immersion into Macbeth’s Scotland as it collides with Civil War era and modern day San Francisco.
A few things you should know before purchasing a ticket:
Prepare yourself for the sound and fury of the elements... Fort Point is a very cold place. Long underwear, down jackets, windbreakers, hats and gloves are recommended.
You will be on your feet throughout the 3 hour event, and navigating narrow passageways, spiraling stone staircases and dark chambers. If you have any mobility disabilities, be sure to state so on your registration form.
There are no bathrooms within the Fort. There are bathrooms immediately outside Fort Point, accessible pre- and post-performance. Provisions exist for emergencies, but in the absence of such circumstances, the doors of the Fort will remain sealed for the duration – once we go in, we’re in.
We will offer tea and snacks at a few places to keep you fueled.
We Players does not recommend bringing children less than 12 years old. Parts of the Fort are dark and creepy, it is COLD and DAMP, and there is a good deal of violence in this play. Please be aware of this when deciding whether or not to bring children.
No cameras or recording devices allowed.
NO REFUNDS. NO EXCHANGES. Choose your dates carefully.
