Fog x Hill, Hunnewell Building Lawn, Arnold Arboretum, 125 Arborway, Jamaica Plain, MA 02130

Fog x Macbeth brings Shakespeare's tragedy of political ambition, blood, and flawed humans into the landscape of the Arnold Arboretum, and the art and shifting atmosphere of Fujiko Nakaya's fog sculpture. The play's live and site-specific, performance will resonate with Frederick Law Olmsted's landscape design and Fog x FLO, Nakaya's fog installation throughout Boston's Emerald Necklace park system. Actors' Shakespeare Project explores robust language, resonate stories, and the deeply human characters in Shakespeare's plays through productions, that like Macbeth in the fog, are informed by the spaces in which they happen. All seating is free and on the lawn. Witches, murder, intrigue--all will be revealed in the fog...or will it?

Bring a blanket, a low chair, a picnic. Dress accordingly for the weather. Street parking limited. Public transportation encouraged.
