Welcome to The MacBeth Project
Theater for the People By The People
The MacBeth Project was built out of a community outcry for more African American representation in the classical theater arts. It is a 5 year project producing the story of MacBeth, co-created with a different cultural asset each year, infusing the productions with both cultural identities. Currently we are presenting: 30 Minute Shakespeare!

The MacBeth Project presents short versions of some of Shakespeare's most beloved classics...with a twist!
Incorporating our love of Afro-Futurism, which honors the African Diaspora bridging the past, present, and possible futures, we are re-building and re-imagining the possibilities of Shakespeare. The MacBeth Project was built out of a community outcry for more African American representation in the classical theater arts.
Our Short Shakes program is designed to give free access to this work in perpetuity.
