Macbeth

Macbeth is bloody, fast-paced, action-packed and psychologically tense. Populated by witches and haunting apparitions, it tells the story of over-reaching ambition, a toxic marriage, a kingdom in crisis and a man’s encounter with his darkest self.

Returning victorious from battle in the service of King Duncan of Scotland, Macbeth and Banquo encounter three witches who prophesy that Macbeth will become King of Scotland, while Banquo’s descendants will be kings.  Consumed by ambition and spurred on by his wife, Macbeth embarks on a murderous path to secure his position and confront his own fears.

“It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing."
