Throne of Blood

Opens July 21
Oregon Shakespeare Festival, Ashland, Ore.

Along with its usual mix of classics (Hamlet, Twelfth Night) and contemporary fare (Lynn Nottage's award-winning drama Ruined), this scenically situated regional theater will bring one of Shakespeare's standards full circle: avant-garde director Ping Chong's new work is a stage adaptation of the 1957 film Throne of Blood, Akira Kurosawa's acclaimed screen version of Macbeth.
