Speak No More: The Silent Shakespeare Festival
If the first installment  Hamlet…the rest is silence surprised Washington audiences with its silence, Synetic’s second Silent Shakespeare production took the area by storm with a “titanic clash of blood and thunder.” One of the most successful Synetic productions of all time,  Macbeth returns with its dark tale of ambition, bloodlust and the supernatural. In 2008,  Macbeth was the recipient of five Helen Hayes Awards after being nominated for 11. Set in a dark, impressionistic, military world,  Macbeth is a swirl of murder, madness and self-destruction, exploring the outsized ambitions of a husband and wife.

Macbeth stars Irakli Kavsadze (2008 Helen Hayes Nominee Outstanding Lead Actor) as the doomed king, Irina Tsikurishvili (2008 Helen Hayes Nominee Outstanding Lead Actress) as Lady Macbeth, Philip Fletcher (2008 Helen Hayes Recipient Outstanding Supporting Actor), Mary Werntz, and Sarah Taurchini as the infamous three witches, Ben Cunis, veteran Synetic Theater Company Member, as Macduff, and Salma Shaw (2008 Helen Hayes Nominee Outstanding Supporting Actress) as Lady Macduff. The production also features Alex Mills, Ryan Sellers, JB Tadena, Dallas Tolentino, Ryan Tumulty, Vato Tsikurishvili and Matt Ward.
