SHAKESPEARE ON THE LAWN presents Macbeth

Our most popular event of the year! Performed by Iowa Stage Theatre Co., William Shakespeare’s Macbeth will come to life under the stars with the 
majestic south terrace and gardens as the backdrop. The tragedy is set primarily in Scotland, and follows the character of Macbeth, a bold Scottish general, as he becomes power-hungry and demented with political ambition. Shakespeare brilliantly portrays Macbeth and Lady Macbeth's downward spiral as they struggle with the punishing physical and psychological effects of greed. 

DOORS OPEN AT 6:00 PM.
ARRIVE EARLY - BLANKET SPACES ARE VERY LIMITED THIS YEAR DUE TO STAGING AND ARE ON A FIRST-COME BASIS. ONE BLANKET PER GROUP PLEASE.
Salisbury House will have lawn chairs set up but if you would rather use your folding chair you are welcome to switch ours out with yours.

HANDICAP ACCESSIBLE PARKING AND ENTRANCE IS AVAILABLE ON THE NORTH SIDE OF THE HOUSE. HANDICAP SEATING IS ON THE TERRACE AND IS ACCESSIBLE FROM THE NORTH ENTRANCE OF THE HOUSE.

Salisbury House will have beer and wine for purchase.

Valley West Hy-Vee will be selling hot dogs, brats, burgers, chips, soda, water and snacks. Over the Top will be selling Homemade Ice Cream.
Vendors accept cash only.
