Richland Springs casts U.I.L. One Act Play

Richland Springs recently cast their U.I.L. One Act Play choice for the 2017 competition, Macbeth by William Shakespeare. Macbeth is the shortest tragedy that Shakespeare wrote, and it is thought to have first been performed in 1606 and later published in the Folio of 1623. The play dramatizes the damaging physical and psychological effects of political ambition on those who seek power for its own sake. Shakespeare's source for the story is the account of Macbeth, King of Scotland, Macduff, and Duncan in Holinshed's Chronicles (1587), a history of England, Scotland, and Ireland.
