MACBETH

Why is Shakespeare’s “Scottish play” the perfect autumn thriller? It has it all!  Deceit, intrigue, treachery, murder, backstabbing (literally!), plus witchcraft and ghosts give it the spooky feel that sets you on the edge of your seat.  Director Dan Hodge (of the acclaimed Philadelphia Artists Collective) is crafting a fast-moving production different than any other version you’ve seen. He’s placed it just after the First World War, full of the occult and the birth or our modern world, but still the classic tale of a man and his wife, temptation, and the  prophecies made by a trio of witches. The acclaimed Hedgerow Stage and the bare stone walls provide the perfect backdrop for a spooky, bloody, war-torn world where “something wicked this way comes.”

April 9-28

When French soccer superstar Thierry Henry single-handedly knocks Ireland out of the 2010 World Cup with an unchecked foul, three fiercely proud (albeit not overly bright) Irish fans decide to avenge their team. This Inis Nua original takes on World Cup elimination and the fall of the Celtic Tiger as international intrigue, a rare Belgian beer and the world’s most popular sport come together in unexpected ways.
