Author: William Shakespeare
Summary: Returning victorious from battle, Macbeth meets three witches who prophesy that he will rise to the throne of Scotland, though its heirs will be the descendants of another general, Banquo.
Spurred by this prophecy and the encouragement of Lady Macbeth, he murders the sleeping King Duncan and assumes the throne. And once he's also murdered Banquo and Lady Macduff and her children, he feels secure because the witches have told him 'none of woman born shall harm Macbeth'. But great Birnam Wood is stirring.
Shakespeare's shortest tragedy is brought to life in this stunning new production that will take its audience on a dark, relentless rollercoaster ride of terror.
