Auditions: Macbitches

When a freshman is unexpectedly given the coveted role of Lady Macbeth, a few upperclassmen actresses invite her over to “celebrate” her casting and reassert their positions at the top of the theatre department’s hierarchy. As the Fireball and Svedka flow, the girls interrogate their own sense of ambition as well as the power structures that have shaped their theatrical education-and when the night spirals into violent and shocking acts of betrayal, they come to learns that “what’s done cannot be undone.”
