Byron Nelson High School’s theatre department will host its fall show, “Macbeth,” daily from Thursday, Nov. 3, to Sunday, Nov. 6, presenting the William Shakespeare classic with a unique new perspective.

“Macbeth” serves as one of Shakespeare’s most popular tragedies, telling the tale of a Scottish hero who becomes undone by his relentless ambition for power. Wrapped in psychological intrigue, the play also weaves a political tale with seduction and murder.

While Byron Nelson’s play stays true to the Shakespeare classic’s story, its director, James Hammer, has placed it in a stylized post-apocalyptic, dystopian land. The change, in the vein of the Mad Max movie franchise, provides a new experience for those familiar with the tale.

Performances take place 7 p.m. Nov. 3-5 and 2 p.m. Nov. 6 at the Byron Nelson High School Performing Arts Center, located at 2775 Bobcat Blvd. in Trophy Club. Tickets to the show are $5 for students and senior citizens and $10 for adults. Northwest ISD employees and Gold Card members are admitted free of charge.
