Think small but deadly and, in this case, mix in a sordid tale of deception, guilt and corrupt nobles and you'll start to get the picture of what happens when Tiny Ninja Theater Presents Macbeth
. This is grand spectacle on a tiny scale, and it's happening Wednesday, Dec. 8 through Saturday, Dec. 11 at 8:15 p.m. and Sunday, Dec. 12 at 3:15 p.m. at Manbites Dog Theater in Durham. With a motto that proclaims "there are no small parts, only small actors," the New York City-based Tiny Ninja Theater
has expanded the company of late to also include non-ninja action figures. Hence the powerful performance turned in by Mr. Smile as Lord Macbeth. Call 682-4974 or visit www.manbitesdogtheater.org
for details and www.tinyninjatheater.com
to check out some dynamic little actors. Tickets are $20.
