E.D.G.E. Theatre is proud to announce the return of MacSith, April 30 – May 24 at Pendulum Theater Space, 1803 W. Byron Ave. Based on William Shakespeare’s Macbeth and set it the Star Wars universe, MacSith is adapted by Orion Couling and Jard McDaris and directed by Couling. Running time is 70 minutes. Previews are Thursday, April 30, Friday, May 1, Saturday, May 2, Thursday, May 7 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, May 3 at 3 p.m. Opening night is Friday, May 8 at 8 p.m. The performance schedule is Thursdays – Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 3 p.m. Tickets are $15 for previews and $18 during the run. Tickets may be purchased at EdgeofOrion.com.

MacSith is a Star Wars/Shakespeare mash up, it is not a parody or a farce and remains true to the Bard’s original work. Both Shakespeare/Star Wars-fanatics and the Shakespeare/Star Wars-novices will be transported to a new world based on a classic work featuring nearly 40 actors. Civil war has finally ended on the planet of Cumber. The victorious Mon Beth is returning home to celebrate his army’s triumph against the Weyan invaders. However, there is a dark power at work and forces unlike anything Mon Beth has previously faced are beginning to stir. Soon he encounters a sinister prophecy: Against all odds and his low station, Mon Beth will one day become King of Cumber. Driven by this prediction and by his wife’s insatiable lust for power, Mon Beth puts all his might into taking the throne at any cost.
