Hudson Theatre Works, is interested in theatre that is edgy, actor driven and intimate. It produces plays that mirror this aesthetic. This includes its PlayWorks series of new play readings and its company workshop The Forge. Its production of A Steady Rain was named one of the top 10 shows in New Jersey in 2016. 

Macbeth is Shakespeare's only thriller. It is a psychologically complex drama of power, love, ambition and loss.  When three mysterious figures prophesy that Macbeth will be crowned king of Scotland, the noble warrior and his wife quickly begin a bloody rise to power.  Part cautionary tale, part magical horror story, Macbeth remains one of Shakespeare's most compelling plays.
