by William Shakespeare
Witches, prophecies, ghosts, the ruthless pursuit of power and a bloody trail of murders to achieve it – the “Scottish play” has it in bucket loads.
Are people as trustworthy and honest as they seem or are they really cowardly and evil? Macbeth starts the play as a hero, having just won a major battle for King Duncan. But when Macbeth is told he will become King of Scotland himself, it sparks his ruthless ambition. Egged on by his wife, Macbeth pursues a bloody path leading to murder and the threat of civil war.
Shakespeare's classic story of betrayal, ambition and the drift towards tyranny is still compellingly relevant and will be brought thrillingly to life in this contemporary production.
