The CWRU/CPH Conservatory Ensemble Series

The 2017-18 Season

MacBeth by Shakespeare

Directed by Taibi Magar

December 6, 7, 8, 9, 13, 14, 15, and 16 at 7:30 p.m.

December 9 and 16 at 3 p.m.

Although written in the 17th century, Shakespeare’s Macbeth remains a powerful tale of ruthless ambition. Returning from victory on the battlefield, Macbeth meets three witches who open the door to the lust for power he may have always possessed. He is aided and abetted by his wife, Lady Macbeth, and their narrative is a dynamic and visceral tragedy about the collateral damage that comes from unlimited power. See the Class of 2018 in their final CWRU/CPH MFA Acting Program show.

Fifth of July by Lanford Wilson

Directed by Donald Carrier

March 28, 29, 30, 31 and April 4, 5, 6, and 7 at 7:30 p.m.

March 31 and April 7 at 3 p.m.

Part of Pulitzer-Prize winning writer Lanford Wilson’s celebrated Talley Trilogy, Fifth of July is a powerful yet humorous play about post-Vietnam war disillusionment and a generation still searching for meaning and direction. Set in rural Missouri, over the course of two days, long standing resentments and disappointments are aired as the characters struggle to find meaning and redemption.
