PAE at Lone Fir: Macbeth

Here's what I love about Lone Fir.  You've got a lot of people buried at the end of the nineteenth century.  But there are pockets of gravestones that have just been interred in the last decade or so.

We saw  Portland Actor's Ensemble's Hamlet at Lone Fir a few years ago.  It was a very good production and fun to return to the cemetery for this production.

Actors setting up their changing room.

I adored my dinner from Peacock Picnics.  Onion Bourbon spread, Salmon Dill spread, a half baguette and a very nice presentation all for $10.00.  Happily, you get to return the presentation part.

Some early plotting.

I'm not sure why this lady was attending this production as she was busy reading the comics while it was going on.

Taking advantage of a monument for seating.

Comic-reading lady shared a blanket with this disinterested couple.  All three left at intermission.

Macbeth and a nice shot of a gravestone.

I liked the wine glass holder.

Professional photographer.

I loved this green hat.

The actress playing Lady Macbeth (Cecily Overman) probably wouldn't be thrilled by this photo, but I love it.

The witches.
Overall, a very good production in an excellent setting.

Boil boil toil and trouble...

It looks like such a fun production. Odd to find such disinterested people! That dinner basket is adorable. And only for $10!?! What a deal!

Man, I love cemeteries. The older the better. I said this to my friend the other night (while we were at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery to see Ferris Bueller's Day Off) and she was like, "Um, why?" And I said, "Because I'm morbid?" It was a little awkward. Whoever had the idea for a company to make picnic meals for people was brilliant. I would so utilize them all the time. My least favorite thing about a picnic is putting the basket together myself.

I love cemeteries too! There are so many things to look at and make up stories and what have you. Plus, they are really peaceful.

One of my favorite things we did when my Aunts took me to Hawaii was visit the cemetery on Lanai. There were a lot of things left on the graves that added an entirely different level of cool.

And I would greatly enjoy seeing Ferris Bueller's Day Off in a cemetery. And I would love to be buried in a place where people came to watch movies!
