Methought I heard a voice cry “Sleep no more!
Macbeth does murder sleep…”

Having played Lady Macbeth in Bare Theatre’s 2006 production, veteran Triangle actress and longtime Bare Theatre member Rebecca Blum takes the helm in this epic Shakespearean tragedy. This will be the company’s fourth production on the outdoor stage at RLT in three years, and it features a new take on the “Scottish play,” with a re-cut script by Blum that focuses on the disintegration of family within the jealous power-hungry struggle known so well to theatergoers.
All shows begin at 8:00pm. Gates open at 7:00pm each night.
Forest Theatre is located at 123 S. Boundary St., Chapel Hill, but the entrance to the theatre is on Country Club Rd., just down the street from Playmakers. Be aware that Playmakers has a summer repertory July 24 & 25, so allow yourself enough time to find parking.
Audiences may park along Country Club Rd. or in the Cobb Parking deck behind Playmakers. Other campus lots that are free on nights and weekends are also available, although farther away from the amphitheater. Please heed all campus and Town signs for parking.
One food truck and a Locopops cart will be available each night. The trucks will be parked directly across the street from the Forest Theatre entrance. Audience members may bring food into the amphitheater for picnics, but Battle Park is a Town Park and ALCOHOL IS PROHIBITED.
Scroll down for the complete list of food trucks each night.
Porta-johns are available at the top of the hill behind and off to the side of the amphitheater.
All tickets to Macbeth are general admission and seating is first-come, first-served. The amphitheater is equipped with terraced stone levels, but we strongly recommend audiences bring folding camping/lawn chairs or seat cushions. Aisles must be clear at all times.
