Macbeth

by William Shakespeare


Directed by
Susanne Crosby

A brave Scottish General, Macbeth, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland.

This glimpse into the future has ctastrophic consequences.

Spurred into action by his wife, he propels himself on a destructive journey of ambition and lust for power, hich slowly destroys all in his path.

Shakespeare shows us, in Macbeth, the dangers of ambition without conscience and what happens when guilt catches up with us and brings us to reckoning. Greed, murder, supernatural prophecies – and a very human General who after one dreadful act is propelled headlong into tradegy.

This play is about how those who have unchecked rule and desire for power, for its own sake, can destroy everything and everyone before them; including the ones they say they love – the echoes of which are still relevant today.
