11/2/11: Lady Macbeth

Nov 1, 2011

Veteran Utah playwright Aden Ross says she confers with William Shakespeare every day. When she's trying to make sense of something - artistically or politically - she says she turns to the Bard for answers. Her latest play is a look at modern politics, so it's fitting that she inhabits the stage with her own version of his characters - among them Lady Macbeth, Iago, Portia and the Fool. Wednesday, Aden Ross and others join us to talk about what Shakespeare can still teach us about our world.

  • Plan B Theatre Company's Lady Macbeth runs through November 6 at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City. For tickets and information, click here or call 801-355-ARTS.
