Macbeth Seeks Justice

Actors playing three witches in Macbeth

Our popular annual mix of theater and law recently returned to the stage, this time in People v. The Weird Sisters. Actors from UC Irvine’s New Swan Shakespeare Center performed scenes from Macbeth, Berkeley Law Dean Erwin Chemerinsky and Stanford Law Professor Bernadette Meyler were prosecutor and defense counsel in a trial charging two crimes, and the audience served as the jury. You can watch a video of the irreverent event.
