Murder, temptation and treachery, all the makings of a modern thriller, but this is Shakespeare's "Macbeth," a chilling and powerful political thriller of greed, corruption and death. The Lone Star College-North Harris theater program is presenting five performances this February. The play is directed by John Cash Carpenter, LSC-North Harris drama program director. Set design is by LSC-North Harris student, Darwin Gilmore III.
