By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes! The annual Shakespeare double kicks off the AIM Dramatic Arts 2018 season with Something Wicked: two 90-minute adaptations of Shakespeare's Macbeth (directed by Luke Rogers) and The Taming of the Shrew (directed by Peta Downes), with design by Megan Venhoek, lighting design by Ben Anshaw and sound design by Michael Huxley. Something Wicked is a fresh take on two Shakespeare classics, performed by Stage 4 Bachelor of Performance students.

Macbeth by William Shakespeare
Friday 20 April 6pm, Monday 23 April 2pm and Tuesday 24 April 7pm only

A nation will fall. Allegiances are destroyed. Nothing is as it seems and no-one can be trusted. Blood will have blood. Macbeth is destined for the throne but a twist of fate sees the honour fall to another. The choice to accept what is given or take action to right the course lies in the balance. Do you do what is right or get what you deserve? Shakespeare's psychological thriller of ambition, manipulation and the thirst for power is re-imagined in a dystopian future where betrayal is lethal.

The Taming of The Shrew by William Shakespeare
Monday 23 April 7pm, Tuesday 24 April 2pm and Thursday 26 April 6pm only

It's 1966 in a small country town called Padua in the Mid-West of NSW, somewhere west of Bathurst and south of Dubbo, where men and women still live in the past, clinging to traditions and reluctant to change. But a counter-culture is happening in the cities of Australia and it is about to blow into town. Kate is outspoken while Petruchio is unorthodox. Bianca wants to marry the richest man she can find and Lucentio wants to escape his mother. Two crazy courtships ensue and love is found in the most unlikely way under the most ridiculous of circumstances. A madcap, controversial and thought-provoking social comedy about whirlwind marriages, blind love, speaking your mind and finding your voice.
