Shakespeare & Company
A gripping tale of blind ambition and nefarious plotting by two of Shakespeare's most notorious anti-heroes of all time, Macbeth is a deliciously shadowy thrill ride. When yearning and imagination collide in the darkest recesses of a passionate mind, there may be blood. If victims fall in the consumption of power, the conscience can devour itself from within. Peace and sleep do not come without a reckoning. Such is the eternal and towering reminder of this stunning classic. Directed by Obie Award-winning director Melia Bensussen. Not to be missed!

Shakespeare & Company operates year-round in the Berkshires, scheduling hundreds of performances on our indoor and outdoor stages, scores of workshops, multiple lectures and demonstrations, and literally thousands of classes for professional and aspiring actors, teachers, and directors. Tina Packer Playhouse Inspired by Shakespeare's theaters-where everybody was close to the action; our air-conditioned, scaffold-and-canvas theatre, places audiences on all sides of the stage (in the round) and on two levels. With box seats and comfortable armless, cushion-backed benches the Playhouse seats over 400. Amenities include an indoor bar and lobby, concessions, and restrooms. The theatre is wheelchair accessible. Elayne P. Bernstein Theatre This versatile and intimate stage space, 70 feet by 35 feet, seats 200, with four distinct seating configurations for stage presentations and events. The space is highly adaptable and flexible, depending on the creative needs of our performances and event. Amenities include an indoor bar and lobby, concessions, and restrooms. The theatre is wheelchair accessible. The Roman Garden Theatre Located right on our Kemble Street campus, The Roman Garden Theatre is a unique 280-seat outdoor venue with comfortable seating and a delightful casual ambiance. Seating is in the round. Shakespeare has always been closely linked with the outdoors. In Elizabethan times, the Bard's plays were performed in the open-roofed Globe Theatre. Outdoor Shakespeare performances immerse you in the "natural world", a landscape that offers an escape from conventional society, a theme integral to the Bard's plays. Come delight in the thrill of a professional Shakespeare production under the beautiful Berkshire skies. Rose Footprint Theatre Our tented outdoor theatre is a reconstruction of the first level of Shakespeare’s first London theatre, the Rose Playhouse. Situated on our beautiful Rose Meadow, the Theatre features bleacher seating and removable “groundling” seating for up to 250, with restrooms nearby in Josie’s Place Cafe.
