Now in its 32nd year of Free Shakespeare in Zilker Park, Austin Shakespeare brings a professional production of a modern, military Macbeth facing unusual witches and sword fights in camouflage. Audiences are encouraged to bring blankets and picnics for the production co-sponsored by the City of Austin Parks and Recreation Dept.

Bloody “Macbeth” will be played by Marc Pouhé, who created the role for Austin Shakespeare at the Long Center’s Rollins Theater in 2008. His provocative wife will be portrayed by Helen Merino, who has played the title role in Hamlet in Zilker Park as well as at the Long Center.
