WARNING: OUR STAGE FIGHTS ARE LAME!

(Don't believe us...check out the the video!) But it's only because our actors are using the lamest weapons ever....plastic tubes wrapped in duct tape!  You can not cut off the usurper's cursed head with a plastic tube!  Alright, we won't really be cutting his head off with a sword either, but we do want to look as professional as possible AND provide the safest working conditions for our actors.

The Baltimore Shakespeare Factory has been touring Shakespeare's comedies around the region since 2008.  We have recently found a home at St. Mary's Outreach Center and we are ready to take it up a notch.  Macbeth will be our first ever tragedy, and we want it to be as tragic, bloody, and violent as possible, for you...our audience!
